About This Class


One of the most common issues I hear from artists is “I just don’t have time”. They want to be drawing consistently, but there’s never enough time to do it. How do we ensure we can make time for my art?


The real issue with making time for art depends on where you currently are on your artistic journey. If you say you “don’t have enough time to draw” you are dealing with either Surface-Level Techniques (you're ready to implement tactical techniques to use your time efficiently to make more art) or you're dealing with Deep-Down Issues (you're not ready for those techniques, because you have deeper issues that need to be addressed before those techniques can work for you).

In this class, I'm going to cover BOTH these aspects so we can all make time for our art no matter where we are in our life as busy artists. 


For years I thought drawing consistently was just a matter of willpower and discipline and would beat myself up for not being able to do it like other artists do. But through experience, I’ve learned that’s just not true. There’s so much more to it, and more often than not, the struggle stems from issues much deeper than willpower. There's a deep, hidden reason why you're not able to make time for your art, and I'm going to lead you through it here in this class.

By the end of the class, you’ll be more aware of what's really getting in your way of drawing and you'll be armed with techniques and guides to finally start drawing consistently no matter how busy you are! Now let's not waste time and jump right in!
