365 days of Artistic Development

STEP 1: What is your project going to be?

personal artistic development with a digital emphasis

STEP 2: What will your daily deliverable be? What will you actually be doing every single day?

I’m developing a curriculum using my saved skillshare classes and personal projects I have on back burners. Depending on the day I’ll watch a video, sketch or work in AI and PS. My aim is at least 20 min a day, 5 days a week.

STEP 3: When will you find time in your busy schedule to fit your 365 day project?

This is a hard/easy one for me. I’m in a medical waiting room at least 3 times a week with a family member. My life has to be flexible with bad days/nights. I hope to scrape out 20 min in the morning, if that does not happen then 20 in the evenings on days without long wait periods.

STEP 4: How will you keep motivated and accountable for 365 days?

My daughter going to do her own project and we are planning on using the $5 gift card motivation.

STEP 5: What will you do for the first 10 days?

1. Prioritize skillshare classes (done)
2. Fill the on-the-go bag (done)
3. Watch a video
4. Develop/ work on project
5. Use the on-the-go bag as needed
6. Repeat steps 2-5 as needed
7. Evaluate/ expand curriculum plan (if needed)

Daughter gets an extra $5 if I use step 7 more than once month and count it as a day.

STEP 6: Why is this important to you? What's going to keep you going all the way until day 365?

Apparently care givers can lose a sense of self when they are being selfless. (Not a good thing by counselor trying to get people to avoid depression. Advice from sitting in to many waiting room by well meaning on lookers.) This project meshes with my crazy life and my family loves seeing my finished work.

I started on Monday even if I could not get this posted til today.
