2009 Art Goals

These little kids didn't seem to be behaving themselves during lunch.

I usually do not make goals in life because very rarely are they met. Our Creator frequently leads me in other directions. This year, though, I decided to try to set some goals around my art. I would like to further my career with art in 2009 and need some guidelines to go by.

2009 Art Goals
Create a newsletter
Create a website
Egg Tempera techniques
10 hours studio time each week
Enter 3 – 4 local and international exhibits
Promote correspondence drawing course
Blog – minimum of 3 entries a week
Research teaching by video
Promote commissions
Create a price list

I am thinking about setting studio hours to help keep me on track. I don't believe that creativity should be rushed so I have had trouble having enough pieces available for shows or sale. I would like to know if you have studio hours and how that works for you.

Valerie - this is nice and neat. A set of manageable goals. You've thought about it I'm sure, but this is simply stated...makes it easy to remember and pursue!

Thank you, Rose. I wrote the goals how I originally penned them. I thought about making them look more elegant but didn't see what that would achieve.
