The Artist's Way Creativity Workshop

Artist's Way 12-week Creativity Workshop Artist's Way is a life changing "spiritual path to higher creativity". This 12-week program is designed to remove your artistic blocks and free up creative energy.
I've done this program twice, and I'm here to tell you that it works! It's not easy, however. It takes work. Daily work. There is a lot of soul searching and digging into your psyche, but there are fun exercises, too.
It's totally worth it.

The first time I did the program, in 2006 (I believe), I was only able to do the first four weeks of the course because my life changed so much in that time that I simply did not have time to finish. Nor did I feel a need at that time; I was on a creative high.

I did it again in 2010 and ended up starting my art business as a result.

The program is all detailed out in the book, and a person could go it alone - that's what I did back in 2006. But after doing the program with a group in 2010, I have to say that I recommend the group. You get dynamics in a group that are just missing when you go it alone. And it's nice to get feedback from others, and to know that you're not alone on this journey. Also, having to be accountable to the 12-week time frame, and to a group, helps keep you on task.

 I offer Artist's Way creative classes a couple of times a year. We do creative exercises that I've designed, in addition to following the 12-week program that Julia Cameron maps out in the book. 

If you're in the Denver area and are interested in joining a class, check my website for the schedule, or email me to find out when one will be offered.

You'll need to purchase the book if you're going to take the class, and you can purchase it pretty much wherever books are sold.

Questions? Feel free to email me.

  1. When is your next 12-week class scheduled? I'm sorry I'm too late for this one. I read the Artist's Way many years ago and think it is a great program. I'm sure it is even more fun in a group.
