The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. Whether you see yourself as an artist or not, this book and class (led by Creativity Instructor Kate Gavigan) can be an incredibly useful resource to tap into your creative side which can benefit many parts of your lives. The 2 hour a week 12 week long class will take students through the 12 chapters with an emphasis on the accompanying chapter exercises and additional creativity exercises and strategies (i.e. meditation tools). This material can work with anyone, no matter how dormant or energized their creative life may be.
Julia Cameron uses three basic tools for students to enhance their lives and their creativity: morning pages (writing 3 pages longhand of stream of consciousness writing), artist's dates (solo fun dates with yourself) and completing creativity exercises at the back of each chapter. Students report that as a result of going through our Artist's Way class they more fully and genuinely know themselves, they discover or re-discover their gifts and talents and have more fun and joy in their lives.
To quote Julia, "In order to retrieve your creativity, you need to find it." The basic tools and the additional creativity exercises that we incorporate into the 12 week course can help you do just that. No prerequisites required for this class. Maximum 11 students per class.
