We will walk through strategies and tactics that will make the daunting process of polishing your work manageable and even, dare I say it, fun.

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!
