Artist's Way Classes are Now Open for Registration for Fall Quarter 2015

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 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, and can enhance their ability to be more fully and genuinely themselves.

Julia Cameron uses 3 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. 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.

September 18 - December 11
Fridays, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
$375 (12 weeks)
Instructor: Kate Gavigan
Note: No class  November 27

"The class was life changing for me. I have been having breakthroughs in my writing and have been more keenly aware of opportunities. I also feel more confident in my work. I am in a stronger place as an artist." Beth P., Winter 2014 Artist's Way Student

“If someone asked me if they should take the class I'd tell them if you are interested in changing, deepening and exploring a more creative side of themselves, this is absolutely the class for them. “ Jessica G., Winter 2014 Artist's Way Student

For more testimonials from alums:
(a $75.00 nonrefundable deposit secures your space in the class with the balance of the class tuition due a week before class starts)

Please note: it is not unusual for students to have to miss a class or two over the 12 week session. We provide detailed notes for any class you miss in order to ensure you stay connected with the material and the other students.

Kate Gavigan has been facilitating Artist's Way classes since January 2009. Kate is passionate about The Artist's Way having personally experienced the benefits of the materials. Kate worked in social services as a trainer for over 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist's Way, which helped her uncover a passion for the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs teaching these classes, acting, working in arts marketing and home organizing) to having gone through The Artist's Way.
