artist's flight path

I've received several messages lately asking for advice about where to begin with my art lessons. I created a path that I call The Artist's Flight Path that helps you get an idea of where you are and what you need most.

This self assessment will help you place yourself in the best classes for you right now. The Artist's Flight Path is the organic path that I took which begin with step by step lessons and eventually let to creating original art and managing an online art business.

 

Take a look at the different stages in The Artist's Flight Path, and find classes and information to help you where you are right now.
