T he Artist's Way Class (12 weeks) Summer 2013 - Pay full $375 class tuition here
The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. Whether you are 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 works with everyone, no matter how dormant or energized their creative life may be, and enhances their ability to be more fully and genuinely themselves.
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 can help you do just that. No prerequisites required for this class.

Kate 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 job teaching these classes and working as a PR Manager at a local theater) to having gone through The Artist's Way.
