Do you love making art but struggle to find the time for it? Have you ever questioned whether your work is “good enough?” Perhaps you are a professional artist who feels overwhelmed by getting your work out into the world, unsure of where to start, lacking a plan or focus.
In this workshop, we will connect you with a sense of purpose that will propel you forward. You will leave with a concrete plan to establish an unbreakable studio habit - no matter how much time you have! We will explore how artists unwittingly sabotage their own success and what to do about it. You will leave this class motivated to get back on task with the business aspects of your art career.
Through guided meditation, discussion and written exercises we will move deeper so you can experience more joy and ease in your path and art can have the impact it’s meant to.
