A new year feels a bit like a blank canvass. Full of possibilities but a little intimidating at the same time. One way to make this year seem a bit more manageable is to make some great new year’s resolutions to help you accomplish your goals. Here are a few things to consider as you make your list of resolutions this year.
- Remember that it’s sometimes the littlest things that make the biggest difference. Resolving to do a sketch every single day this year is sure to improve your talents more than a making a vague goal to “get better at drawing.” So, make a small goal that you will complete consistently, at least twice a week.
- Make goals that will stretch you. If you don’t aim for the stars you will never reach them. Choose to say “I can” instead of “I can’t.”
- Don’t make your list too long. Choose a few goals that you can easily remember and that you can focus on. You don’t need a hundred resolutions to improve your art, you need just a few that will really make a difference.
- Resolve to get more education. Read art books from the library or sign up for an art class. You could even follow a great art blog (hint, hint). Never stop learning and growing.
- Make a resolution to promote your art. Make consistent posts on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. Find ways to network with other artists and potential buyers. Signing up for art competitions is also a great way to get your name out there.
I hope this helped you make some perfect resolutions for this new year! Please post your own art goals in the comments, I’d love to hear them. You can read my art and blogging resolutions here.
