Spark your Creativity through The Artist’s Way Workshop

Part I 8-week facilitated course

This workshop is for anyone wanting to live a more creative life!

Do you like to write, sing, make music, act, paint, draw, dance, or decorate your home? Would you like to be more creative in your workplace? Maybe you are looking for a new hobby or a new way to express yourself. If so, give yourself the gift of time and join us for 8 evenings of self-discovery and fun.

Julia Cameron’s classic text, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, will form the basis for this course. Come explore the keys to unlocking greater creativity in your life. As we work and share together, artists and non-artists alike will find the exercises and practices enlightening.

You’ll learn how to dismantle emotional blocks to creativity, including conflicts involving personal relationships, preconceived notions about success, concerns about money, and doubts about your own abilities. By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to draw out your inner artist for a heightened sense of authenticity, adventure, and creative power in your everyday life.
