Lending Inspiration

Find your style

Find inspiration from Articipate’s lending shelf. Here, you’ll find a starting point…is it the color that grabs you?  Abstract shapes, landscapes? Does bold, simplicity draw you in or contrast and complexity? Grab a spot at the table and copy something you like (always a legitimate way to start.) Find your style. Find the process that suits you by exploration. Articipate’s mission is to entice you into creating…our space is an artistic playground.
