Artists Thrive's Thriving Stories
The Artists Thrive website has
a growing collection of stories from artists and organizations like YOU that go hand-in-hand with our Self-Assessment tool.
Daily Meditation & Contemplative Practice Offerings: Breathing breaks, reflection journaling, monthly morning practice, midweek mantras, mindful drawing, and meditation. This is a virtual offering from Pratt Institute and is free & open to all.
Artist Linda Enfante-Lyons shares how she maintains balance in her practice by both protecting studio time and also getting out of the studio to generate new inspiration.
The first step to get on a path to thriving is to assess where you are at today, and then make a plan and set goals to improve on your areas of interest. Surveys are available for individual artists and those that work with artists.
