Last year I met Alice Sheridan, Alice Sheridan Art, in London. I’ve been following and paying attention to Alice on Instagram – Alice Sheridan and Facebook since 2017. I love her art, her approach to making her art and art business. During our meeting, I asked her what she was doing to grow her art and her art business. Alice is as approachable in life as she is on social media. I remember her first FB Live and thought to myself, “If Alice can do this so can I!”. I’ve since joined her Connected Artist Club where I receive art and business consulting through online course work, weekly calls, a private FB group, and more. Regarding my creative development, Alice referred me to Nicholas Wilton, creator of the Art2Life workshop. I enrolled in Nicholas’s free 2020 Art2Life Week-Long Workshop in 2019. It’s a weeklong FREE workshop and well worth the commitment even if you don’t go on to enroll in the full course. I took a leap of faith and enrolled in the 12-week online course. My primary medium is watercolor. But I wanted to take my art-practice and process to the next level. While Nicholas teaches this course in acrylics, it was just what I needed to break away from self-limiting mental habits I’d developed over the last decade working in watercolor. I’m still integrating and transferring the CVP course information into my painting process in watercolor and I highly recommend this program if you, like me, are feeling stuck in your creative development in painting. Check out the free 2020 program which starts on February 14, 2020.
