Your art is magic
Someone told me the other day that what I do with my art and my practice is magical. I think when people tell us things like this, our immediate reaction is to correct them because what we do as artists is hard work. While this is 100 percent true, I also think some magic happens when we wholeheartedly believe in our capacity to create and handle anything that comes up in our studio. We have to lose that self-consciousness that often interrupts us when we’re creating. Creative confidence allows us to tap into that space intentionally because we’re not criticizing or judging ourselves. If creative confidence is something you could use more of in your art practice, join me for Growth Studio Week next Monday!
Everything is built on trust
One of the strongest momentum killers in your art studio is impatience. Many of the artists I work with struggle with feeling like they should be further along in their development, or they should have sold more paintings or any number of comparison-based insecurities. All of these feelings are both normal and untrue. The reality is they don’t trust themselves, and they don’t trust their voice. Oftentimes the impatience we feel with our art is because we carry disbelief. We don’t truly believe that we will get to where we want to go so we can’t relax and enjoy where we are now. If this describes you, join me next Tuesday during Growth Studio week so I can help you get to where you want to go creatively.
Is the price right?
Money is a topic that many creatives tend to shy away from. Yet, our mindset around money has a major impact on our art practice. It affects our beliefs about what we can and cannot do with our art. It shows up in how we price our art, and the kinds of projects we take on. We have adopted so many ideas about art and money and what it all means from other people. But maybe those ideas aren’t actually serving you? If this area is one of opportunity for you, you’re not alone! Join me next Wednesday as we tackle some of our unconscious beliefs around money so that it no longer limits the potential of our art.

Hi. I’ve signed up for the Growth Studio week, but most of the sessions are at impossible times for me in New Zealand (the middle of the night, which I just can’t do!). I’m wondering if the sessions are recorded, and whether it is possible to access the recordings at another time? Many thanks. Brenda
Hi Brenda, Absolutely, The sessions times vary to allow opportunities for as many time zones as possible to attend a session live. Recordings are available for 24 hours for the sessions you can’t attend.
Hi Antrese, I have been looking for the “blue button” you mention in your email, and I can’t find it to download the first class I wasn’t able to attend. Thanks!!
Hi Anne! You can watch the replay here: https://savvypainter.com/growth-studio-week/
I am in Australia so 3am my time isnt practical for me to join the zoom sessions, are there going to be recordings and will we be able to access them? Thanks Rae
Hi Rae – The sessions times vary to allow opportunities for as many time zones as possible to attend a session live. There are two events this week that are scheduled with Australia/ New Zealand artists in mind. I have members from Australia in Growth Studio who are able to attend live every week, and then they watch the recordings of the events that don’t work for them. Recordings for this free event are available to everyone for 24 hours after the session ends. When you join Growth Studio, you have access to the full library for as long as you are a member.
