It's the beginning of Summer Art Workshop season! Yay! Here is a rerun of an article I wrote last year for Urban Sketchers Chicago. I believe they're timeless tips for successful workshop experience. What would advice would you add?
- SET A GOAL – Why am I taking this class? What do I hope to learn?
- KEEP AN OPEN MIND – Pay attention and follow directions. It’s easy to fall into the attitudes of “that isn’t the way I do it” or “that isn’t the way so-and-so does it” but leave those notions behind at least for the duration of the workshop.
- THINK PROCESS NOT PRODUCT (I know, I say that all the time) – It takes practice to learn new techniques and methods.
- ASK QUESTIONS – Your instructor wants you get the most out of your time in the class.
