About This Class

Join designer and author Adam J. Kurtz for 5 quick exercises you can do TODAY to get clarity, focus, and renewed direction for your yourself & your creative career. 

Sometimes you have all the techniques, and you just need a little push to make sure you're in the right direction. Other times you're so overwhelmed that you kinda forget the whole point of everything!

Each of these simple exercises will get you thinking about what really matters to you — setting the foundation for your creative decisions going forward. We'll hang out together and talk about how crazy life gets sometimes as you work through the 5 steps.

This class (/pep talk/art therapy/joking around with a guy you don't know) is perfect for freelancers, creative business owners, designers, makers, creators, emerging artists... basically anyone who's working so hard that they're forgetting they're actually a human being with their own unique core values.

I used to buy your art from a tiny local art supplier years ago and have followed your works growth since. It's so refreshing to hear that you propelled yourself through pursuing personal projects! Truly an inspiration for little lost illustrator me. This project was a much needed emo and ego purge at the end of this dark dark year. Thanks for being brave and rad and putting yourself out there so honestly. <3 <3 <3

Really great information and delivery. Thanks for making it entertaining!
Wow, 10/10. I'm at a weird point in my life where I am rethinking my choices school and career-wise, and my creativity has been in a slump for a long time. This was so profound and just what I needed. Thank you!
