It means stepping out in faith that your basic skills are in place for this venture. You reflect, and say ‘yes’ to the notion. Community college art classes are fun and the instructor teaches you to reach your goals. She is realistic, you are realistic, and by the time the class concludes, you have another piece to hang in your home or even your office at work. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been ______(10)______.

    The word ‘but’ in the last sentence changes the flow of the sentence.
    In the first part, it has a negative connotation. So, in the second part, it must have a positive connotation.
    => Options B and C can be eliminated.
    ‘Productivity’ is wrong. The correct form would be ‘productive’.
    Cost is not discussed in the passage => ‘inexpensive; is wrong.
    => ‘Rewarding’ has a positive connotation and also it fits in the blank well grammatically.
    Hence, option A is the answer.
