New Ways to Challenge Yourself | Artist’s Network University

by Beth Samek, Online Education Manager at Artist’s Network University

Integrating art into your daily life is a challenge, but once you’ve successfully created your daily artistic life, it’s important to keep moving yourself forward. Pushing your own artistic skills and boundaries can help keep things interesting and help you continue your success!

When you’re looking for a new way to invigorate your painting practice, it may be hard to know where to start. Finding the right challenge can really be a challenge of its own! There are lots of great options out there, here are just a few:

An Art Webinar!
WetCanvas live is an awesome opportunity to get short-term shot of inspiration –for free! Each webinar focuses on a different artistic topic and features some of the top Artist’s Network artists. If you can’t make the live webinar event you can purchase the webinar from Northlight Shop for a low price!

A Painting Critique!
Art critiques give you the perspective you need to push your art to the next level. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, but with personalized art critiques you’ll not only see where your artistic weaknesses lie but also where you are strongest and where you should focus next! Artist’s Network Art Critiques partners you with one of the great instructors at Artist’s Network University and they work with you one-on-one to help you get a fresh angle on your work.

An Online Art Course!
Of course, I might be biased, but taking a course with Artist’s Network University is a great way to try something new, something a bit more advanced or work with a favorite artist without the travel or time commitment. Work at your own pace, as your schedule allows, giving you plenty of time to complete assignments but still challenging yourself. We even have a new course at Artist’s Network University that is dedicated to the challenge. Art Challenge! 4 Challenges to Improve Your Painting is a course designed by Linda Fisler. Each week demonstrates a different pillar of great painting. The perfect artistic experiment!
