Im Starting Module 3 from Do What You Love Design Class and I am STOKED!
There is an amazing website, Do What You Love For Life which continues to inspire me on a weekly basis. Though from over the pond in England, this surface design course (click here to learn more about these most amazing classes) …I have now taken twice since I have been almost too busy working at The Beacon Art Emporium and in operating The Lucky Zen Dog line of 100% certified organic goods.
But alas, one must always keep creative if you are an artist even when you are not creating in ‘your medium’ – whether that be cooking a dinner for your family, to writing a new blog post, to simply taking an artist walk around streets you have never traveled on to be inspired for new works of art you might like to create.
This is what the Do What You Love For Life courses have done for me – re-awaken my spirit, forcing me to create in ways I have not done so prior. It amazes me, and even though I may not like a current design I have drawn up, I do not give up – I am bound to learn something new and exciting if not a new skill.
What is also nice is that even after the course ends, you still have access for some time to review perhaps a week or two that you might have inadvertently missed. This has been life-saver for me, since I felt I missed out a lot, and revisiting the courses have helped me re-ground and to instill a better sense of what the lessons were about.
I have also taken the True Bloom by Flora Bowley online course also available through the Do What You Love For Life website. Flora Bowley runs her own website called Brave Intuitive You where the True Bloom course is also available with sessions starting by January 28th!
This course has completely transformed the way I paint – happily so! In fact just this past holiday season I sold several of my paintings in ‘the new style’ I learned by completing this course, along with a number of my limited edition and signed prints. As a direct result from taking this amazing course I continue to grow as an artist in every medium I create in! Not only that – the people I met throughout the course were extremely supportive of one another and highly encouraging of each others’ artwork – it really helped spur us all on to continue long after the course was completed.
So as I return to take Module Three of the Surface Design Course from Do What You Love, I just am so excited to see what I learn this time around, and witness my own growth as an artist, as I bear witness to countless others’ creative growth!
Both websites are active in their social media, so be sure to check them out both on facebook and twitter!
Now go out and be creative! And of course have a lovely weekend!
