We've made it through another week, we're at the end of week 7, all. I hope you've all been staying inspired and are dreaming of the day we all get to go back to our studios! I know I am.
Please share these articles and links with your classes or communities. We could all use a little creative pick-me-up right now.
So, without further ado, the links for the week!
