How to Find Satisfaction in Your Work [151]

Nicholas Wilton talks about the Art2Life free workshop
Apple podcast


Making art isn’t always an easy path to take. But it’s one we choose because it enriches our life, even when the conditions may never feel perfect. Today’s discussion centres on what your art can teach you when you accept the invitation to step forward.

We are joined by abstract artist and teacher Nicholas Wilton to discuss how a learning mindset feeds back into your art. As Nick says “the art is just the artefact of the process” and discovering how to stay engaged in the long term will open up how you create and make more opportunities for you to be satisfied with the work you make.

Alice suggests that the frustration of learning can be more easily overcome once you have some key knowledge which builds up your confidence, and ultimately we settle on ways you can feel satisfied, in life and art, by activating the way you think, and optimising how you approach this journey of onward learning. 


The Art2Life workshop starts on 13th Feb 2023

Do you ever get the sense that you’re doing all the right things… But for whatever reason, your art sometimes feels… Flat? If you answered a reluctant “yes”… you’re in good company.

The annual Art2Life Online Workshop is about to start and it’s packed with key things which will help you raise your game.

The free workshop begins on February 13, 2023 and registration is open now!

It is an entire week of teaching from Nicholas, designed to help you make art that is stronger and more like you. Because it is held online, you can participate from home — no matter where you are in the world. You will learn:

  • Exactly what to do when your art feels stuck or incomplete (this will revolutionize the way you think of mistakes forever)  
  • Ways to make your creative life feel more spacious, joyful and personal to you… even if you’re in a creative funk or short on time
  • How to master composition in a way that will quickly elevate your art

Nick will be sharing insights about how to get unstuck faster, inject more freedom and joy into your process, push your creative boundaries and more…

If you simply want to learn what’s waiting for you at your “next level” of art-making…
