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 living authentically.
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.
Whether you are brand-new to The Artist’s Way or have a bookshelf filled with years of Morning Pages journals, whether you are working on a large artistic project or simply wishing to experience more creativity in your life, this workshop will help you get in touch with your creativity and develop it.
This workshop is based on The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron which takes students through a 12 week course to explore their inner creativity. The material covered explores ways to tap into our creativity as well as ways to nurture ourselves. The tools of the program are practical, inspiring and approachable. Even if you don't see yourself as an artist, the workshop will help you get in touch with your creativity, your passions, and your dreams for your life. The 12 week workshop follows the 12 chapters of Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way.
And now, I am facilitating Artist's Way workshops! I'm thrilled and humbled to lead these workshops. Come join me for this inspiring workshop.
The Artist's Way workshop is based on one of the best books written 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? Cautiously? What if this... What if that?!
And although the workshop is in the context of being creative, it is really about living a full, passionate and authentic life.
Many of you have asked for an The Artist's Way workshop so here it is!
