CLASS 11 | June 6th

Hello everyone,

Todays “Vital self care day” for all of us, does include a few key tasks that ensure full effect!
Taking care of our bodies and minds help us be our best selves, both personally and professionally. Also, one often finds the most inspiration and motivation from the unexpected experiences and observations we acquire while NOT WORKING. These experiences are proven to be vital to a thriving creative practice:-)

This is your Assignment #10:

  1. Get outside, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Take some time to be present with nature in whatever way feels GOOD for you.
  2. This may include exploring something new or seeking out inspiration from a new source: visit a new place, space or person. Read a book, try out a new experience, craft, skill, or revisit an old one.
  3. Afterwards, consider how this may effect/is effecting your creativity and post a 200+ word “report” on the class blog, with an accompanying photo/image/illustration that documents/shares your “self care” experience.
  4. Bring your findings to class on Thursday.
  5. Read THIS ARTICLE for inspiration
