You are dedicated to your craft. You have spent countless hours honing your skills. You have a boundless curiosity for the underlying theories and structure of communicating ideas. You are the artist who finds the connections between your medium and other communications media. You are the artist who relishes in a setback; after all, it's a new opportunity to learn and grow. Inspiration is more than a haphazard mode of thought requiring constant nurturing: it is your natural state of mind.

Lean Into Art is where you go when you're ready to push yourself as an artist in new ways. As a place to learn communication arts online it combines an art-journaling approach, the best of live and time-shifted classes, and a recognition system that encourages students to finish projects, give feedback, even participate in teaching.

It's a big art challenge - that's why we put the enticing warning in the name. You have to lean into it.

If it's fun, it's not work. Is that so? Does a grueling experience prove the work's value? On the other hand, should it always be fun? And what's the difference between fun work and play? We're joined by Kate Shields Stenzinger, Play Therapist and LIA Instructor, for a discussion on the role of play. By looking at why we play and implementing strategies to create more playful experiences with our work, we might unlock more creativity both in the drawings we do for work and those we do for fun.
