About This Class

Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught watercolor and mixed-media artist who loves exploring art, and sharing it with you!

Welcome to Project Planning for Creatives: Getting Things Done with Less Stress and more JOY!

As an artist and  entrepreneur, I’ve struggled to find faster, easier, less stressful ways to get projects done.  I’ve found a way that works for me, and I believe it can work for you, too.

In this class for any level, I share my process for getting things done - also known as productivity

I am a prolific artist. I’ve painted hundreds of paintings - large and small-, and created more than 25 designer tutorial projects in one year - all while teaching online!  I’m good at getting things done. I would love to share my process with you. Whether your project is big or small, you can apply this process to make it achievable, and flow smoothly with less stress, and more joy. 

In this class, we will learn:

  • 4 Steps to Successful Project Planning
    • Pre-planning questions to ask yourself before committing to a project
    • Brainstorming/Mind Mapping
    • Workflow Setup
    • Do the Steps

We will also have Breakout Sessions where I share my approach to the steps with an example project.  I will also give you helpful tips for scheduling your time, and overcoming challenges you may face along the way.

Planning  your project takes the guesswork out of your daily schedule. You know what to do, and when to do it. You know which step comes next. You can see how far you’ve progressed. You can get it done! 

When you complete this class, you will be ready to plan a creative project, such as an art challenge, a series of paintings, or even a creative project for a client!  You will have the skills and tools you need to complete that project with less stress and more JOY!
