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.

You hit it on the head. Never took my art to this level, or never thought about it as goals. I'm guilty of going sideways, but not anymore. Thanks Robert. This is a valuable course if you are serious about your art.
