Great un-sticker for those of us paralysed by doing something "great" every time we do art

This really helped me to get unstuck and just do SOMETHING!

Have your mixed media sketch book ready!

I was gifted a handmade mixed media sketchbook and this intuitive art course has helped me feel comfortable experimenting in it. This course gives some structure to doodling and practicing which, for me, helped take away the scariness of the blank page.

Really Helps When You Feel Stuck!

I loved this video and really gave me some inspiration I needed when I felt like I didn't know what to draw! I was wondering however what the pen you used was?

To relax and just get your pencils, brushes, and paints moving

I liked the personal freedom to not have to draw anything but to put paint to paper

I love the way Shelby inspires you to be creative and even though I cannot draw well, I still have a go and sometimes I do get something useful. Thank you for all your inspirational work.

I really like this concept. The tips are helpful in that they give me permission to not be good—and how to make that happen!

My review

This course is excellent. As a cronic copier of other people's art, the tips offered here will help me with my own creative process and prevent the block that I feel with "what next".
