About The Class

Do. Not. Quit.

Danielle Krysa is the author of Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk, Creative Block, and Collage, all published by Chronicle Books. She is also the creator of the contemporary art blog The Jealous Curator. In this lecture Danielle tells the story of the day she met her inner critic, the 15 year art-hiatis that followed, and the aha moments that eventually taught her how to work with that big jerk. She realized, after writing her first book Creative Block, that everyone hears that annoying voice from time to time (or all the time), but it’s how you two communicate that makes all the difference. Sometimes a little couples therapy is required, because let’s face it, whether you like it or not, that little voice is there till death do you part.

Some of what she'll talk about includes:

  • Forming new habits that will make your inner critic work for you
  • A stop to self-bullying, and the start of getting on with your goals
  • Tips & tricks to push forward when that voice shouts, ‘ QUIT!’

    How timely was this class. I identified an inner critic that I had not fully realized. I know what to do with this part of me and excited to change the small little voice. Danielle shares her journey and how so many others have similar experiences. Good to know we are not alone and how to move beyond our doubts. Take this 45 minute mini class and see if you might find a nugget or two like I did. Enjoy!

    Thank you for this free video, I enjoyed it. I have decided to call my inner critic "Jack", that way I can say "Hit the Road Jack, and don't ya come back". I admire your tenacity and I appreciate hearing what you had to say and the questions from audience and your answers. Bravo!!!
