Jumpstart Your Studio Practice (Online)

Feeling like you've lost your studio groove? Wish you could start a solid studio practice? Maybe you cant get to your studio or you've fashioned one within your home but it's not quite working? Join with other artists who feel similarly and support one another in getting back on track and vibrant again. In this class, well look at what it takes to build a solid, ongoing studio practice. You'll gather with other artists and go through a series of steps that will have you designing an ideal space within your home and/or working out best practices for your outside studio. You'll revive your drawing practice and learn new strategies for researching artists and getting inspired by their work. You'll learn some practical tips for keeping your studio work in a flow rather than being stalled. Finally, you'll get ideas for how to get your work out into the world. Your instructor has maintained a consistent studio practice for 25 years and is ready to share her successful strategies with you. Make this time one of rich and generative studio progress.
