MAKE YOUR ART MATTER



Are you an artist struggling to make art?

Do you freeze when it’s time to get started, or trip out mid-stream?

Are you tired of it being so frigging hard?

I get it…  I really do.  


 

What if art making was actually designed to bring up all of your shit?

What if you had a way to stay with the process long enough to let it change you?  

What if you knew that your Inner Critic and Procrastination held the key?  


I’m here to tell you that making art
doesn’t have to be so hard.


Confronting?  Yes! 

Transformative?  Yes! 

But debilitating?  No! 



Making art is a sacred calling and a gateway to everything you desire.

It’s actually designed to push you into the alchemical fire, but it doesn’t have to take you out.

What most people don’t understand is that alchemy (and making art) is about turning darkness into light. Years of being burned up in the flames and emerging with gold (art) in hand have taught me this.

It’s taught me that the key is to Keep our Ass in the Studio long enough for the real transformation to occur.  


You have to lean into the discomfort.

 

You have to go so far into the fire that you come

out on the other side with gold (YOUR ART) in hand.

 

You have to… 



Keep Your Ass in the Studio is the compendium to your crucible. It’s the midwife to your labour pains.

The best testimonial of all is to be making art, whilst standing in the eye of the cyclone, the centre unique to you, that will sustain you through all the storms, and bring you joy!
— Martin Curran, Buxton, UK
 
I’m feeling revitalized after a very fallow period and am much more positive about my practice in general. I’m making art more regularly and have been able to drop some of the judgment and criticism about what I’m doing.
— Deborah Taylor, Visual Artist, Melbourne, Australia
 
As a result of Keep Your Ass in the Studio I now call myself an artist; I’m quitting a job that no longer fits; I’ve had art in 2 art shows, my studio has expanded in my house, I’m feeling more comfortable in my own skin, and I’ve had wonderful support, encouragement and solidarity with a group of other artists.

REGISTRATION CLOSES THURSDAY JAN 12

Class Begins MONDAY JAN 16 2017



You Might Be Wondering...  

WHEN DOES IT START?

You will receive your first lesson on Monday, Jan 16, 2017. 

HOW LARGE IS THE GROUP OF ARTISTS?

There is no limit to enrollment. The more artists contributing their vital, no holds barred energy, the merrier.

WHAT WILL THE FORMAT BE?

This support group operates online and through a Facebook group. Action steps and course content are delivered via email and available through an online platform called Ruzuku. We don’t meet in the flesh, though of course you are welcome and encouraged to organize that with members of the group who are in your neck of the woods.

WHO CAN JOIN? WHAT TYPE OF ARTIST IS THIS FOR?

Because I’m a visual artist myself, this group works best for visual artists – painters, illustrators, photographers, mixed media artists, animators, textile artists, designers, sculptors, installation artists, craftspeople and those working in social practice, but of course it’s not limited to that. It just means that I’ll best be able to support you with feedback on the work itself should you desire it.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PARTICIPATE?

The only requirement is that you register and pay and follow the instructions you receive. In the meantime, go ahead and add me as a friend on facebook if we’re not already and you could re-arrange or ahem, start dusting your studio space.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE MY OWN STUDIO SPACE?

Doesn’t matter. Kitchens, corners of living rooms, boyfriend’s parents’ basements (yes, I’ve had one of those), coffee shops, sketchbooks, as long as you have the desire to consistently create you’re all set! Having an actual studio is great, but it’s not a requirement.

I HAVEN’T MADE ART IN SUCH A LONG TIME, WILL THIS HELP ME TO EASE BACK INTO IT?

Absolutely. I have transmissions and things to say about that along the way. You can go as slowly as you like. The idea is to help you determine and craft the most healthy, loving, supportive pace and processes that works for you.

I USED TO DREAD CRITIQUES IN COLLEGE. WILL THIS BE LIKE THOSE?

Oh no no no. ABSOLUTELY NOT. There will be the opportunity for feedback, but I make it very clear how we do that and that we do it in a safe, supportive and healthy way. Plus, I only attract the most kind-hearted and supportive souls. 

WHAT IF I’VE NEVER STUDIED ART FORMALLY?

You’re fine. That is not a prerequisite to being an artist or to being in this group. Just know that I won’t be teaching specific art making techniques. We’ll focus more on process than product.

WHAT IF I’M NOT SATISFIED OR IT’S JUST NOT QUITE RIGHT FOR ME?

Once you’re in, you’re in. I’m confident that any artist who integrates this content and engages fully will experience profound shifts in their creative output and disposition towards being an artist. If you have completed all the course content, (as evidenced on the course content page), have engaged in the Facebook group and are still not happy at the end of the 12 weeks, you and I will schedule a conversation to discuss a refund.
