Can’t Live Without!

The “Just Make Art” podcast has informed me more than any other education tool to date!

I personally appreciate their authenticity and vulnerability within their lives and creative experiences and how that speaks to their work ethic and creative practices. Consistently exploring art master's vocabulary and thought has been crucial in leading me to a deeper understanding of my own process and has inspired more intentional and thoughtful art and studio practices. For certain, this podcast is a valuable learning and inspiring tool. A must listen on repeat!
