About This Class

If you've done any art challenges, you'll know that sometimes it's really easy to know what to create. Other times, it's really hard.
This class is about those moments— the moments where you are totally and utterly stuck in front of a prompt and have no idea how to come up with any good ideas. 

I'll be taking you through the process that I use when I'm faced with prompts I just don't know what to do with. We'll be covering little tips and tricks on how best to overcome artist's block and how you can tap into the creativity that's already inside of you. 

Step by step, I'll show you how to go from the prompt, to an in-depth brainstorm process, sketches and a finished piece. 

Hopefully, you'll leave this class equipped with more tools to tackle artist's block when you encounter it during your next art challenge.
