Creative block comes for us all, but Mel Rye has some tried-and-true techniques to break out of it and get back to creating joyfully!

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on March 10th for a live online Zoom session with Mel Rye all about breaking creative block. The session will run for approximately 60 MINUTES. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Mel is an illustrator, artist and a qualified Art & Design teacher. She believes everyone is an artist, it's just a question of allowing yourself the freedom to explore without overthinking things.

She loves teaching, because she adores that lightbulb moment when something falls into place for someone - when there's a realisation that you CAN do this!

She believes we learn best when we're not really thinking too much and are excited about the thing we are creating, so she likes to create Skillshare classes which will show you how to make awesome class projects, teaching you a ton of skills along the way.

Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Mel and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event using the discussion forum below, or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
