Students will stop midway through a longer assignment to think about their process. A fundamental part of the artistic/creative process is to problem-solve, make decisions, and edit. Often, artists get emotionally caught up in the process, and when something doesn’t seem to be working out, they get discouraged and want to quit. An important studio habit of mind is to engage and persist. An exercise like this encourages artists to work through a difficulty and to problem-solve by reflecting, experimenting, and revising.
