She’s starting her own Artist Breakthrough Program

From Jennifer Anderson Printz:

I wanted to let you know that your last newsletter and the idea of the Artist Breakthrough Program has been on my mind since reading it. The idea of a sort of bootcamp or dedicated incubator period just seemed to resonate with me very strongly.

So tonight I have decided to use the month of February (its a great month and my birthday is at the end so its equally inspiring ) to jump in and get out and about in the LA art world. In the next few days I will finalize my plans and research to have everything in place to complete my list of 28 things to do in the 28 days of February:

1. Go to 28 galleries
2. Comment on 28 blogs
3. Email 28 LA artists
4. Make a total of 28 blog posts (on my own blog) or posts of my art or a link to my website on art related sites
5. Send out 28 packets to galleries/alternative spaces, etc.
6. And lastly – keep a daily journal to write 28 positive things about me and my art/art practice as well as a brief daily entry about my goals.

Realistically I know I am expecting a lot from myself, but I am feeling such a great surge of confidence from the thought of using this month to focus on me and my goals. Its such a great idea – and I just wanted to share since I am “borrowing” it from you and your coach! If the “class” generates this much energy for other people then I know it will be a great success.

Jennifer, this is great! I'm so happy you're inspired–I can feel your enthusiasm in your words. However, I'm afraid I have to burst your bubble. This February is a Leap Year. Are you up for 29 days?

  1. I love this idea and as I have been listening to all the wonderful speakers at the smARTist telesummit it has given me much food for thought and I am inspired by Jennifer’s commitment and enthusiasm. It’s something I definitely want to explore and works towards. So I may join you once I determine my goals!

  2. I was just thinking today that I should put together some kind of program for myself to jump-start my art community outreach in my new home city of Munich. These are some great ideas!

  3. This is going to be my very first blogging, meaning to respond to a blog. I have made new goals for 2008 and creating a blog is one of those goals. I did not work on my art for 3 months, took care of personal stuff and found a new way of doing things for myself and my art. My big goal is to reorganize my environment. That means for just the month of Feb. I will look at new ways of building wealth not only in art but in other areas of my life, my career and my relationships. Making a big change in the way I do things: 1. Find an environment that supports you to be successful. 2. Clear out and get rid of old stuff and make room for new stuff. 3. Make new friends/clients that will generate new ideas and new path for your success. Thank you for all your blogs.

  4. reportedly, even god rested on one day in the week. so resting on the one day of the quadriennially extended shortest month might not be such a bad thing… or, perhaps, plan to use the day to reflect on the previous 28 — and see that it is good…?

  5. Hi Alyson, Thank you for inspiration and the guidance. I am joining the February challenge with a small challenge to myself – do a blog post everyday in February… so far so good, 6 posts already, I even linked to you yesterday…

    Jul: I love that your goal involves community! Please report back. Asha: Glad to have you here and in the blogosphere. I think those are excellent places to begin and I know they’ll work well for you. Cate: Brilliant! “And on the 29th day, she rested.” I can hear a booming voice behind that. Natalya: Terrific. That will help build momentum.
