I think it was a really good course. It helped me pre-plan my future career path (I am currently going to study computer graphics) and learn about various options of earning money as an artist. In each lecture there were several examples of guests from the Iva’s YouTube channel who earn money on specific method and episodes numbers in which they performed. I needed it because since I was a child, I loved to create, but my parents always told me that artists are often discovered "after death" (they were thinking of painters such as Vincent van Gogh etc. when they heard about art schools) However, seeing how unhappy I am in „normal” high school they understood what really pleased me. I want to thank you Iva and recommend the course to other people who are wondering "is it worth" to enter the artistic path and more experienced ones who think about additional earning possibilities.
