Scary? Not. My techniques for getting in touch with your critic are pretty amiable. He’s not going anywhere so let’s get to know him!
This is a reformatted version of the my 21 Secrets workshop from last year.
If you took that class, please don't take this.
This is not the Very Beginner's Art Journal class.
I’ll encourage you to move quickly, outrunning your critical left brain. Think storms of words, lines, collage and color and a comfort in imperfect (gasp!) journal pages.
Games and prompts will help you locate that critic-free space within. That power gives you the strength to begin a communication.
