In case of emergency -
Put your oxygen mask on first so you can then helps those around you.
An observation on feeling intimidated:
The fantastic work of my klassmates was ridiculously intimidating at first. I'm a little out of practice, but not a beginner. Still, I kept thinking "I have no time. How can I measure up?" I've seen some similar comments. I finally kind of yelled at myself "We are all unique & this is NOT a competition!" Then I did a 5 minute sketch between errands. Skool is about learning a wonderful lifelong habit. In addition to our teachers, we learn from each other. Every artist has their OWN voice and journey. How boring if we were all at the same point of the journey and drawing in the same style.
I'm blown away by the beginners diving right in. You rock! Anyone out there still hesitating? Just start - pen to paper and then share. Don't imagine your page has to be perfect (that's impossible anyway) or even recognizable. It's YOUR life and YOUR art. You know we'll be supportive and kind - offering advice when requested. Get to it!
