Great class for improving your art through setting goals, being consistent, working with your moods, observing your work and making notes on it, being productive with the time that you have and more. I learned new things and it reinforced what I already know but haven't been applying consistently. Having a go-to subject to work on every week is gold! How to spend your time during studio sessions...mind blowing for me.
Wow! Another great class from Robert. I can totally relate to this class, been hung up with no inspiration or goals for a few months now (lame). I think this class will help me take my art to the next level. Turning the negative into a positive and relating it to art. So simple but how quickly some of us forget that. Thanks for the inspiration.
