I just took this course which is rich with challenging and well-presented ideas about developing one's work as an artist. Robert's concerned, personable and thoughtful teaching resonated as I saw over and over how problems he discusses have occurred in my own experience and limited my progress. I think his approach will help me be much more aware of how I work, about issues coming up and about what to do to progress. I feel it is too soon to have better comments but am heartened to apply these approaches to my art.
Awesome class! I love the concrete examples of how to apply these skills and methods. I'm the type of person who really needs the process of learning and improving to be spelled out to me because it really can be so abstract. thank you!
so helpful to hear someone break it down. I think many artists have an easy time thinking broad and that is why the breaking down into goals can be difficult.
