One of my resolutions for this year is to take more chances. With that in mind, I signed up for Alisa Burke’s Sketchbook Delight class. Now I am not an artist, nor am I even an accomplished doodler, but I do like to draw and I don’t do it enough to improve my skills, which is the only way I know to get better at something…practice! Plus, I have acquired a ridulous amount of art supplies over the years and it seems a shame to not put them to use.
While I am on this journey, I do plan on sharing my experience with you, but you must promise not to judge.
For me, this class is a journey
A journey that is taking me down a path outside my comfort zone, and one that I am not going to give up on, even when it becomes frustrating and when I am not perfect at it. It’s significant that I share this journey with you and accept that I cannot be perfect at everything I do. The important part is not that I can imitate Alisa’s talent (I can’t), but that I push through any frustration and self-doubt I may have to keep at it.
Our first week of class started yesterday and I, being the good little student I am, got started on my homework right away. I spent some time getting to know some of those art supplies I’ve acquired.
