The featured student for July is Jonas Zavacky! The Q&A with Jonas (@JONAS ZAVACKY) is up on the blog. Below is an introduction to the Q&A that Kathryn Adebayo (@KATHRYNADEBAYO) conducted with Jonas:
"Here is an invitation to sit back and relax for a moment. If you are a fellow creative, prepare yourself for a break from the hectic business side of your art career, the stresses of commissions, the worry of artist block, the question of whether or not you have the ideal portfolio... Just enjoy the next few minutes while you read this exchange with SVSLearn student, Jonas Zavacky, and let yourself be reminded of the most real and true reasons why you do what you do."
