I live in a fair small city and the closest art school would be like 4 hours drive, and the private courses some artists have in my city are mostly for absolute beginners.
A while ago I was thinking to organize something like a weekly meeting of painters for a few hours, maybe bringing in a model for all to paint, exchanging opinions and inspiration, coffee and sweets. I thought it could be a nice thing to do but it takes some organizing and some willing friends. I've not abandoned that idea yet...
Thank you for stepping in

ETA: I subscribed to that youtube channel, looks interesting.

I starred you here because I too have destroyed many of my drawings/writings over the years.

However, Night Star makes a good point. Remember that Stephen King's wife found the novel "Carrie" in the trash. I've never read it, but the point is that it started his career as "the King of Horror."

Also, real art is more to do with the soul than it is craft. Sometimes we don't see it ourselves and need an outside perspective. I've had art which I regarded as much superior to my others which no one liked but me, and others which I felt rather weak but which others loved. When it comes to touching people, or getting one's career/business off the ground, you really do need to listen what others think (since it's for them.) Art comes from self, but we are not always the best judge of which of our creative expressions the world really wants or needs. After all, we express from the soul and that concludes our role.
