Using Julia Cameron’s book “The Artist’s Way,” explore creativity through discussion, journaling and a series of activities that open the door to more creative living.
Everyone is creative, but not everyone easily expresses it. Julia Cameron’s book “The Artist’s Way,” opens the door to getting back in touch with the expressive, imaginative part of yourself. “We hunger for what might be called creative living—an expanded sense of creativity in our business lives, in sharing with our children, our spouse, our friends,” she writes in her groundbreaking book. With “The Artist’s Way” as its guide, this six-week course includes journaling, conversation and class participation. Engage in a series of small, creative acts that open you to the vast world of your imagination through morning pages, artist’s dates, synchronicity and wish lists.
