Weekend Two (2-day): July 4-5, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Whatever kind of creator you are, you’ve discovered ways to learn about the craft part of being an artist. What you may struggle with though, is how to show up consistently for your practice. You want to do the work because not doing it causes too much suffering, but you’re not always sure where or how to start. Or maybe, despite previous success, you’ve found yourself stuck or stalled. Or, maybe you abandon your practice when life gets too busy or other, “more important” things take over.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about “The Three Good Habits” developed at GOOD (a Victoria-based workshop studio that helps creative practitioners do good work and live good lives). As we unpack the habits, we’ll delve into things like mindset, routines, project planning, time-blocking, tracking, and reviewing. Tried and true, the habits will train you to show up for your practice like a pro—which means you’ll be better able to rise to your aspirations, take on the projects you’re passionate about, and meet your goals.
Overall, by learning to structure your practice, you’ll not only be honouring it, but also yourself as an artist, and yourself as a person in the world with something unique to contribute.
A supply kit will be provided by the instructor, but students are welcome to bring any of their favourite supplies.
