Next week I will start leading my second Artist's Way workshop. These workshops are based on one of my favorite books about creativity, Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way.
This workshop is really about how to grab your creative life by the lapels... because sometimes it's hard to know how to even begin... Apologetically? Enthusiastically? What if? What if?
And although the workshop is in the context of being creative, it is really about living a full, passionate and authentic life.
I have taught drawing, watercolors and sketchbook class to hundreds of students from 4 to 92 years old. I often find myself referring to The Artist's Way in response to the challenges my students share with me. These challenges are creative obstacles that have less to do with technique and more to do with giving ourselves permission to find our own voice. Which is really a way of saying, more to do with grabbing life by the lapels.
The Artist's Way is one of the best books I have discovered on the topic of living a more creative and present life.
I first came across this book in the early 1990s, when the only way I could bring myself to look at the possibility of being a full time artist was sideways. Like most people I know who have The Artist's Way on their bookshelves, I only made it through the first few chapters (several times). But luckily I circled back to it over and over again. Eventually I committed to reading it and working through the suggested exercises. It's transformative.
And now, I am facilitating Artist's Way workshops! I'm thrilled and humbled to lead these workshops. See the flier below for details and visit my Workshops page if you would like to register.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.
