Learn strategies for rekindling passion and renewing devotion to your artform with Eric, America’s foremost creativity coach.
For young children, creating is pure pleasure. Then all sorts of demands begin to creep in. Does your giraffe look like a giraffe? Is your grammar perfect? Are you singing on pitch? Over time, creating can feel like anything but pleasure. If you identify as a creative or performing artist, new demands creep in. Will what you create or perform be wanted? What about criticism, rejection, and silence? What about all the competition? Do your efforts even matter? These many challenges can snuff your creative spark right out, but that spark can be rekindled! Whether you’ve only dreamed of a life in the arts or logged thousands of hours in your chosen craft, join America’s foremost creativity coach to learn how to overcome the challenges every artist faces making art and making a living from it. Through lectures, exercises, and discussions, you’ll learn how to keep the creative fires burning by identifying and managing the major emotional and practical challenges that come with a life in the arts.
