EXPLORING THE ARTIST'S WAY
EXPLORING THE ARTIST'S WAY
6 WEEK CLASS
SEPT 12TH - OCT 17TH
The Artist’s Way is an all-time, self-help classic, helping you to reignite your inner artist, recover your creativity and let the divine energy flow through you as you create your art.
This book is a classic example of someone choosing themselves. Originally it was self-published by Julia Cameron after, it was turned down by a publisher. The book outlines a 12-week course (that we will do in 6 weeks). This book will spark the light of your inner artist, even if you haven’t created much art since doodling stick figures & using glue sticks in your youth.
"We’re encouraged to be “goal-oriented” and rewarded with outsize praise for everything we’ve accomplished, and so we feel that we need to turn every creative pursuit into a professional one. This makes some of Cameron’s lessons more urgent than ever. But, unlike earlier generations of readers, we don’t need Cameron to protect us from the voices telling us to doubt ourselves. What we need, instead, are new voices granting us permission to try new things in private—and then leave them be." - The New Yorker
Ready to doodle, draw, paint, write or whatever you used to love when you were an artist (aka. a kid). Time to reignite your creativity!
Everything from start to finish will be supplied & you will be guided through the process. If you already have a journal and favourite writing utensil, feel free to bring it along.
“Creativity is always a leap of faith. You're faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage.” - Julia Cameron
