Resolution Reload - Get Your Art On!

Okay. We're about a month into 2009 and most of you set some sort of goal, intention or resolution about yourself. This is where the cliches fly and the rubber hits the road...

Are you shooting for the moon or are you "but"s hanging out?
Do you want to soar like an eagle or pick at roadkill leftovers on the highway of life?

I'm willing to bet most of you started with gusto and all that, and 90% of you are just doing the same things you've always done, getting the same results, or worse yet, thinking in the back of your head about a full-time day job with benefits. (Trust me..I had that argument with myself just the other day as I began my taxes for '08.)

Solution? Get your art on!
1. Find a like-minded group of people and create some inspiring ideas together. (No artist is an island, babe.)
2. Take a class, yes, even if you're already a pro, these events can be great ways to network, get new perspective and..gasp...even learn something new.

Here's one suggestion for readers in Greenville, SC:
Meg Cowan is offering a 12-Monday class for The Artist's Way for less than $100. (By the way, Julia Cameron is okay with people teaching this and charging a fee, if you're worried about copyright and intellectual property issues.)
