This is part 4 of my farewell to teaching series.
That’s a long blog post title, but that about covers it. This 46 minute video is excerpts from my Wrap Up Webinar with my final Drawing Practice online session.
I talk about the topics in the title.
For past drawing students just showing up at this post, I hope you enjoy the reminders and the pep talk.
For everyone else taking time to watch this video know that I really do believe you can learn to draw and that you can make “Drawing Practice” a part of your daily habit. In doing so I believe you enrich your life in all the ways I’ve always gone on about in the posts on this blog. I really do wish that for all of you.
Just because I’m not teaching “Drawing Practice” any more it doesn’t mean you can’t take the tips in this video and make them work in your life. What you’ll need to do is identify your goals clearly and specifically (not in vague terms!). You’ll want to create a supportive environment of friends and family who understand those goals are important to you. And you’ll want to show up every day to honor those goals and commitments.
Remember—you get to choose to have drawing in your life. And no matter how stressful or chaotic or joyful and ordered that life is your choice to make drawing a part of your life might not always be easy (or ever easy) but it will pay you back in great dividends of creativity and connection with the world. Payback from showing up.
Take some time today to set some goals, and sit down with intention to work on them. Have fun. Remember to Breathe!
