Learn how you can nurture the skills needed to create grounded scenes that can sustain themselves for longer than just a few minutes. In this class, we will focus on breaking out of any habits you may have formed that can hinder grounded work, while we explore the small steps we can make to do truly sustainable, dynamic scenes.
