This class is designed to help you reject the Gremlins of self-doubt on your shoulder and pursue creative activity not as a profession but as a form of self care.
At the core of the process is a ritual called “morning pages,” based on the belief that writing out three pages of writing, in longhand each morning, will unclog your mental & emotional channels and of all the muck that gets in the way of being happy, productive, and creative. The other weekly assignment is to take yourself out on a date once a week. Woo yourself, treat yourself like the special person you are.
Combined, these things, along with the exercises from each chapter will help you blossom into the creative soul you've always been.
"What if I don't see myself as an artist, can I still take the class?" The answer is a definitive Yes!
The Artist's Way class is open to all students, whether you see yourself as an artist or not.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN ARTIST TO TAKE THIS CLASS
We use the word "artist" in the broadest sense. Whether you're an artist, a teacher, a lawyer, a mom or a blogger - you are being creative every day. Your style is a creative choice, your weekend plans are a creative process, your daydreams are creative.
Let's articulate that voice together.
WE ARE ALL CREATIVE
The Artist's Way has helped more than a million people access their creativity and realize their dreams. "Making art of any kind is an alchemical process. Making art, we turn the dross of our life into gold.
Making art, we re-create ourselves."
- Julia Cameron
The book was written originally to help people with artistic goals who felt stuck, achieve creative recovery. I will be sharing the techniques and exercises from The Artist's Way book, by Julia Cameron, to assist you in gaining your self-confidence and harnessing your creative talents and skills. In this class you will be supported, encouraged and held accountable for finding your particular voice.
The ideas in creative personal development outlined in the book, have been a phenomenon for 30 plus years.
"Any art form connects us to the muse" - Julia C
