The Thriving Artist: Making Your Creative Life Work for You (W20)

Instructor: Katrina Geurkink

How close are you to being the prolific and fulfilled artist you set out to be? Do you feel like your artistic life/career might have more traction if you had more time to spend on it? Do you feel overwhelmed by everything you are trying to juggle in your life and throw up your hands at your attempts to get “better organized”? You are not alone. Managing multiple priorities is an ongoing struggle for many artists. The goal of this class is to help you learn how to tap your most useful resource - you! - and find ways to structure your work and shape your time effectively so you can overcome what is holding you back from being productive and achieving your artistic aspirations.
