FALL ARTIST'S WAY CLASSES ARE NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATIONThe Artist's Way
by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. This book and workshop can be an incredibly useful resource to tap into your creative side, which can benefit you professionally and personally. The 12 week class will take students through the 12 chapters with an emphasis on the accompanying chapter exercises and additional creativity exercises.
Julia Cameron uses 3 basic tools for students to enhance their lives and their creativity: 1) 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 will help you do just that. Maximum 11 students.

Like so many others, I had The Artist's Way sitting on my bookshelf for years. I tried a time or two to do it on my own, with no success. When I saw the advertisement for the class, I knew immediately that this would be the way that I could finally do the course and tap back into my creativity that I knew was there, buried deep under the day-to-day stuff that I let get in the way. The facilitators were excellent and they and my fellow classmates were supportive and provided the feedback and accountability that I needed and wanted, things that can't happen when you do it on your own. If you have The Artist's Way sitting on your shelf, get it down, dust it off, and take this class - you won't regret it!
Artist's Way StudentKate Gavigan
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 theatre and marketing the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as a PR Manager at a theater and teaching Artist’s Way classes) to having gone through The Artist's Way.
has been secretly coloring outside the lines since she was told as a youngster that she was "no good" at drawing. She has been teaching and speaking to support the spiritual development of women's lives in the community for the past 15 years. The Artist's Way
exposed her love for color, design, writing, and theater as "creative". She is currently exploring her love of writing and her own spiritual growth as a Spiritual Director.
