Mindset Transitions is a ten-week group coaching and artistic self-development programme. On this page, you will find full course information. The focus of the programme is to understand your artistic mindset more deeply bringing about creative shifts and growth in your art and art practice. There will be two groups running across different timezones, so whether you are on the West coast of the USA or Canada, in the UK or Europe, Japan or Australia there will be a time that can work for you.
The next course is autumn 2023 express your interest by joining the waiting list. I’ll be sharing updates on the programme, feedback from this year’s delegates and there will be some bonus material too.
Artistic skill, practice and mindset are three core elements of being an artist. As we grow from the place of being a novice or beginner artist, acquiring skills and knowledge along the way, we can reach a point where we realise that the next step in shifting up a gear in our art is not about learning more skills, but about addressing our creative mindset. Mindset is important for artists because once we have the skills to do something often the only thing getting in the way of us doing those things can be limiting self-beliefs and creative blocks. Knowing our own process is one of the keys to finding our authentic voice as an artist. Growing our awareness and understanding of ourselves as artists increases our options for development and change in our art. You can experience a taster of the course and my teaching here from a recent Instagram Live followed up with a short blog post and a free download called How to be your Own Best Advocate for Your Art
