These courses are actually now on a separate website (even though it looks and works like part of dragonflyspiritstudio.com). The course site needs new accounts so it knows who’s enrolled in what. Privacy laws do not allow me to just copy over your dragonflyspiritstudio.com accounts.
This Course Includes
- 30 thinking prompts—questions to help you deepen your understanding of what you want from your art and art-making, and develop more focused artistic goals
- 30 activity prompts—a suggested activity to help you explore different ways to use your studio notebook besides just “making sketches”
- 30 short videos (15-25 minutes) where I share a few thoughts about the day’s thinking prompt, and then work alongside you on the day’s activity as we listen to some relaxing music. You can use the video as inspiration for your work . . . or just for some companionship.
What Will I Learn?
- learn to explore your journal pages with curiosity and openness to discover and develop your personal creative themes and style
- clarify what you want from your art and your studio journal practice
- use your art-making to soothe your spirit and expand your imagination
Note: This isn’t a “how-to-sketch” course. If you’re primarily interested in my tips for sketching, please see the Sketching collection of articles and videos.
