Cultivating a beginner’s mindset is essential for growing as a creative and figuring out what you’re cut out for. In her talk Vera will share her personal experience with taking full benefit from such a beginner’s mindset and speak of how it led her to paper lettering. She will also share her lessons learned and provide tips on how to solve a paradox of meeting expectations without being trapped by them. Vera will guide you on how to let go of being an expert, but use your expertise to figure out new creative solutions, come to new and fresh ideas, discover your own process and develop your style being self-taught.
