Suzanne’s Make Your Own MFA Plans

I’m looking for classes, books, and resources that further my goals, which are (in no particular order):

  1. Learn new techniques
  2. Strengthen my core art skills
  3. Learn about art history, particularly women in art
  4. Strengthen my critical thinking skills
  5. Develop my own courses
  6. Sell my own art

This page is a work in progress. I will be making additions and deletions as I find new things. I will also update with links to posts about my progress in each of these areas.
