They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. - (Andy Warhol)

This workshop is designed to help you recognize and perhaps reconsider your personal concept of time.  During this workshop you will gain a clear understanding of how you currently use your time in order to best determine how you really want to spend those hours available within any given day.  You will receive practical management methods, skills and techniques for identifying key time wasters, setting boundaries, managing frequent distractions and interruptions, and prioritizing yourself and your artwork.
