The Pure Foundation Back to Basics programme has been designed for all those who want to establish the mindset and a clear pathway to becoming a successful working artist. It is ideal for early career artists, those returning to art after a break, or rediscovering art in retirement. It is also perfect for those who have been practicing for some time and need a moment to reflect, re-evaluate and reset.
The Pure Foundation programme has been created by Pure Founder Lesley Samms from real lived experience, based on 1000's of hours of 1 to 1 professional development mentoring and coaching of artists.
The programme consists of 5 modules delivered via 5 workbooks and PDF activity and reflection sheets. It also includes 4 hours of 1 to 1 support, together with monthly Pure Potential Q&A sessions delivered via zoom.
All students also have lifetime access to a private Facebook group for peer support.
