About This Class

Are you ready to take your art practice to the next level? Whether you want to take your art from hobby to creative career or you want to master a particular skill, Ria Sharon will share her tried and true techniques for getting results.

Ria is the artist and founder of The Animal Guidance Project, a product gift line that went from sketchbook to distribution across the country in 24 months. In this class, Ria will share her behind-the-scenes process of identifying and focusing on a project and how her intuition helped guide her along the way.

In Sketchbook Magic I, Ria taught you how to start and cultivate a daily art practice. In this advanced level class, she will take you on a deep dive, covering:

  • the shifts in mindset that are needed to be open to new possibilities
  • how to tame the beasts of fear and doubt that accompany everyone along the way
  • the habits and practices that are necessary to level up in any creative endeavor

Every lesson will include activity prompts, inviting you to apply the simple and gentle techniques that will move you forward, step-by-step.

This class is perfect for you if you are asking yourself, “What’s next?”

Very informative, and loved listening to her journey to success .
Thank you, Ria!!! Your class is very special and I'm sure I can adopt some advice to my own practice!

I was very skeptical about this class at first, don't really like the concept of something else having control over my life. But Ria shows how a collaboration with the universe is more likely to make the dream come true rather than a lone wolf approach. Very insipiring class, I'm glad I listened to my intuition and watched it, against my left brain's preconceptions :)

Practice Makes Better.

There is no path to mastery that does not involve doing something over and over -- that's been my experience as an artist and illustrator!

So I encourage my students to take small consistent steps by creating bite-sized classes that make art a simple, easy, daily practice -- one that is joyful and fun!
