    There's no exact recipe for being a successful artist, but there are certain truths about life, as difficult as they may be, that are essential to accept if you want to become a better artist.

    If we are being totally honest, the art world can be a very difficult place to navigate—especially for artists trying to establish themselves. Ignorance may be bliss, but preparing yourself for the realities of life gives you an inner strength to deal with them effectively.

    This PURE Arts Club session will run through some of the key basic essentials to help you stay healthy, think big and lean in to your future artistic success.

    It will also facilitate an artist show and tell supported discussion - artists are invited to bring a long a piece of their artwork to present and discuss informally with the group.

    Daniela is a professional photographer and also runs holistic food company Beets Pulse and Thyme

    She will share some simple, delicious and nutritious whole food recipes with us and talk about her own very personal journey to health restoration.

    Her approach is not a diet or a fad and it is most definitely not about being skinny! It's about achieving optimal health so you can pursue your passions and turn your dreams into reality.

    In conversation with Lesley Samms, Founder and Managing Director of PURE Arts Group, we will consider self belief and easy ways in which you can grow your self confidence and accelerate your success.

    Many people credit their self belief and confidence for their success. However, not many people really explain how to build confidence, or how to become more confident. That's because its tricky! You can feel confident in some situations and at certain times of your life but not in/at others. 

    Discovering the things that make you feel happy, learning how to pause or nutralise negative self-talk and side step limiting beliefs is one of the most worthwhile pursuits of your life and will ultimately lead to greater success.

    Before you can sell your art, you first need to learn how to sell your art. 

    There are a number of things you can do to help sell your art. Whether you’re in a gallery, an art fair or online, you’re in a context which is designed for art appreciation and people are there because they want to see and experience art work. They will therefore be open to discussion and the opportunity to reach a deeper understanding of what they see. 

    This talk will guide you through some of the ways you could open a dialogue and engage with these people and potentially convert them to buyers

    Mindfulness is a way of paying attention, staying present and responding skilfully to what is happening in our lives. It helps us manage our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships with awareness and compassion, leading to greater well-being and appreciation, as well as more choice in how to meet difficulties.

    This introduction will cover both the theory and practical aspects.
