Project Description

Step One:

Start your project by introducing yourself. Share your creative dreams, Also tell us what your biggest challenges are. It’s ok to be open and vulnerable here. We are a team. Feel free to include pictures of yourself, your work, or the kind of creative pursuit you want to reach for.

Bonus Points: Look at the other projects and leave someone a comment. Give someone else the encouragement they need, and contribute to this positive community. We all have a lot in common, and a kind word can go a long way.

Step Two:

Fill out your class worksheets. Identify your biggest fears, evaluate whether your fears are worth the sacrifice. Implement a support system! Get going and start moving toward your goals.

Bonus Points: Share an aspect of your support system, or what you will start doing right now even though you are afraid in your class project. 

Step Three: In your project post your Self-Made Creative Statement

Follow the prompts on your worksheet, and commit to your creative pursuit. Share your statement with us in you project. Refer back to this when you feel discouraged.

Bonus: Share your Self-Made Creative Statement on Social Media. Use the Hashtag #SelfMadeCreative. Search the Hashtag on Instagram, and follow, like, and comment on others posts.
