I've succumbed to the Lilla Roger's Boot Camp. I've heard really good things about the Make Art that Sells course and really, that's the one I'd love to do, as it has loads of industry and portfolio tips, but it's a bit pricey for me right now, so I'm doing the slightly cheaper but still fun boot camp.
It's slower paced, over 6 months and really, that's all I need right now, to give me a little kick start.
The truth is I miss school! I'm the teachers pet in the art room who did extra work at lunch time because I loved it so much. And when I think about art school now, I really miss it. I miss projects. I give myself projects, briefs I concoct myself, but it's not the same as being given a professional brief and doing your very best.
On Mondays I help out in year 3 art at the boys' school, and I have to say I love it. Right now they are making Tudor portraits, painting them, then collaging bits of ornate fabric and buttons, and all I want to do is grab piece of board and make one myself!
It's really inspired me.
So hopefully I'll share the odd bit of work here once I get going. x
