For most of us, various parts of our creative projects have challenges. There are parts that slow us or possibly stop us. Sometimes we struggle with developing concepts and taking the initiative to begin. Then there is the need to push through the middle when our energy might be waning. We might even doubt the validity of the work or its focus.

In this workshop, we will formulate strategies to push your work past these roadblocks. We will look at the work qualitatively– reflect on your process, your tools, and what you are making. This class will give you direction no matter what stage of the project you are in, and we will investigate further possibilities for your ideas, process, or approach.

Participants at any stage of their project are welcome! The participants will formulate questions about their work and share their personal hurdles while taking action each day to understand their own working methods. Participants should expect daily, personalized assignments, goal writing, and both group and individual critique sessions. Further resources like artist residencies, portfolio reviews, grants, and networking will be touched upon briefly.
