The Artist's Way Classes in Seattle are Now Open for Registration for Spring/Summer Quarter 2018

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.

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.

"I was hoping to learn how to keep myself focusing on my own creativity and not short-change myself. The class was vastly helpful in that. The class was very useful to me as an artist and as a person. Kate is an amazing teacher." - Cora A., Spring 2017 Artist's Way Student

Kate Gavigan is passionate about The Artist's Way having seen the positive changes in her students' lives and 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 theatre and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as an Artist's Way Instructor and Speaker, a Creativity Coach, a Home Organizer and pursuing her interest in Acting) to having gone through The Artist's Way.

About Thalia's Umbrella
Thalia's Umbrella is a collaboration between Producing Artistic Director Terry Edward Moore and director Daniel Wilson, to produce plays that dance on the line between comedy and tragedy, taking the light of life seriously and the serious lightly, to create a space where, in Robert Frost's words, "the work is play for mortal stakes." Thalia’s first two productions, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg and A Lesson From Aloes, each received a Footlight Award from the Seattle Times. Moore was a co-founder of Seattle Shakespeare Company, and served as Co-Artistic Director there for six years. He has acted and/or directed for most of the professional theaters in the Pacific Northwest, as well as theaters from coast to coast. Daniel Wilson has directed plays professionally from New York to Alaska, and has directed opera in Oregon, Alaska, and for Cornish College of the Arts.

Thalia's Umbrella is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike.  Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success. Learn more at www.shunpike.org.

Parley. Application deadline: April 1, 2018
Parley is thrilled to announce our search for a Production Intern for our funny, strange, talented, industrious group.
This is an unpaid, six-month appointment. It’s open and accessible to all ages (18+), backgrounds, gender identities, sexualities, ethnicities, and levels of experience.
Our intern will work closely with creator/artistic director Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth to manage the meeting-to-meeting administration of both Parley playwriting sections as well as each of our workshop productions. To date, Parley boasts 13 playwrights and 10 artistic associates under our mantle. We produce, on average, 12 world premiere workshops for a public audience every calendar year.
If you are our ideal candidate, you will:
•   Enjoy the diverse personalities of our group.
We need our production intern to attend the back-end of each weekly meeting:
Mondays from 7:30 – 8:30 pm
Tuesday from 7:30 – 8:30 pm
Our meetings on Mondays and Tuesdays begin at 6:15; our intern needs to arrive at the end of each meeting to be present while we will discuss production and organizational “business.”

•   Enjoy stage managing.
Our intern will attend (and take notes at) most rehearsals:
Mondays from 8:30 – 10:30 pm Tuesdays from 8:30 – 10:30 pm Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm
And attend and assist at all technical rehearsals and performances.

•   Enjoy working with artists.
That generally involves being impeccable with your word, consistent with your behavior, and finding a way to be kind even under duress.

•   Know what you’re responsible for and what everyone else is responsible for. Keep us on track.
We expect there to be a learning curve, but we need you take good notes and ask questions like,
“How can I help?”
“Who is responsible for that?” “When is that due?”
•   Behave professionally.
You’ll be the point-person for most administrative information, representing Parley – a writing group – so written and oral communication skills are important. You should know (or be willing to learn) how to write a quick, professional email (proofreading it first for spelling and grammatical errors) as well as how to convey information in person efficiently to well-intended people who may only be half-
listening. (Hint: Follow up by email. Always follow up.) You’ll also be the liaison between playwrights, productions teams, actors, and venues.

•   Interview and train the next intern when you’re ready to depart.

We’re offering:
•   Hands-on experience putting current production skills to use and learning new ones. You will be coached through every aspect of the job.

•   A mentor-mentee relationship with Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth, a teaching theater artist with 20 years’ professional experience.

•   An ever-expanding professional network of people (writers, actors, photographers, videographers, designers) who will want to work with you.

•   Our gratitude. We are a powerful, diverse, sincere, artistic family and we develop plays that matter.

If you’re interested, we ask you to:
1.   Explore our website. http://www.parleyproductions.com Get a feel for who we are and what we do.
2.   Request information and an application: parleyplays@gmail.com
3.   Complete your application and return your materials to us on time.
Our first round deadline is April 1, 2018.

Our selection committee will review all applications and schedule interviews with their top candidates.
Thanks for your consideration! We hope to hear from you soon.

Many theatres listed in the Discounts above do not appear to be current TPS members. Are their offers still good for members? Can we have an updated list?
Also: we were not listed: Aurora Theatre Company's outdoor summer musicals are presented free of charge to the public.
