How To Live the Artistic Life

Are you trying to kickstart your artistic endeavors but just can't seem to find the time and energy? Are you trying to balance your work/family/art? Do days/weeks/months/years pass and, to your dismay, little to no progress is made?

 

This 3 hour interactive workshop will focus on the basics of the artistic life: honing your on-the-fly observation skills, amping up your ability to cram, and adjusting what you can so you can do what you must! If you are, as we all tend to be, bogged down with your art/life balance, this is the class for you!

 

In this class we will talk about how to orient your schedule, your habits, and your energy toward crafting the art that you are dreaming of creating without wreaking havoc upon the rest of your life. If you are ready to begin living the daily life of an artist, we hope you'll join us!
