Suggested order of classes posted



  • I know this has been posted a few times and I should have written them down. Would it be possible to have the list at the heading of the video classes? I mean, when you go to look at classes it is right there...or could someone repost and I will copy it down-I promise. I need to start watching the videos again. It's been awhile and I am feeling very discouraged lately. Maybe I can start over again.



  • This is what I copied from some earlier post:

  • By the way, the book "Art and Fear" is a great book to read when feeling discouraged. I had stumbled upon it on my own and then discovered that a local art teacher makes all of her first year students read it.



  • Thanks both for the question & the answer! I'm a beginner, and have been needing this list, too!

    @Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen, good luck in pulling out of the discouragement. Remember to fill your creative bank account (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46OCXFVqRg4) & then try working on something just for fun. Good idea to go back and watch the videos again.

    Think about what has gotten you excited in the past. Sometimes I get inspired by doing a little drawing for someone close to me, like making a holiday/greeting card for each of my nieces and nephews.



  • @demotlj Thank you!



  • @demotlj Thank you, I will look it up.
