So you want to be an artist…
Last year I started a google doc called “So you want to work in climate…”. I crowdsourced info from Twitter and it went viral. It now has 600+ resources! Honestly, I think it may have been the most impactful thing I created in my time working in climate.
I thought I would create a new google sheet called “So you want to be an artist…” I get questions on how I became an artist, recommendations on favorite supplies, and communities for artists. So what better way to compile that than another open-sourced doc?
Here is the new “So you want to be an artist…” sheet! I kicked it off with 75+ resources of newsletters, classes, books, residencies, grants, art supplies and more. If you are an artist or know of any resources, feel free to go in and add your recommendations!
This newsletter is made with lots of love. If you’d like to support more climate art, please consider becoming a free or paid subscriber 💖
I went to a Watercolor 101 workshop with Wendy MacNaughton this weekend and it was amazing! Her newsletter DrawTogether is a great resource for getting art lessons in your inbox.
Climate Vision 2050 podcast. I love this podcast when I need a little boost of climate optimism. It’s fictional storytelling through the eyes of people in 2050 about how they reduced carbon emissions.
I found this artist retreat in France during my research for the “So you want to be an artist sheet” and now I must go at some point in my life.
Ways to support me:
I officially finished my first draft of my coloring book about clean energy!! If you’d like an advanced copy to share feedback, shoot me an email. You can also get on the waitlist for it here.
I’m open for contract work or commissions. I help climate organizations simplify their messaging into pretty art!
Ok my climate cuties, that’s all for today!
P.S. I have about 150 more resources that people have submitted for the “So you want to work in climate” sheet that I would love some help adding. If you’d like to help maintain that sheet as a volunteer, shoot me a note!
