Facilitator: Renee Reid
Description: The Art of Wellness discussion is designed to assist the Artpreneur with taking care of themselves so that they can share their art with the world. An Artpreneur is passionate, driven, and often struggling financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The constant grind of creation, promotion, and worrying about the inevitable criticism fuels burnout, depression, anxiety, and sleepless nights. It is time to get off the roller coaster of un-wellness because pursuing your art does not have to make you unhappy or unwell. The prescription is radical self-care.
