The Artist’s Way Experiential

Everyone has some kind of creativity to express, and everyone can learn how to express it!
It just takes courage, a willingness to start, and a group of dedicated explorers to share your journey.
Using the classic creativity curriculum, “The Artist’s Way,” by Julia Cameron, well-known artist
Deborah Foutch will take you through a weekly series of readings, exercises,
assignments and projects that will support what you are learning and open new horizons
for your boundless creativity.

Class meets every Monday night from 6-8 pm for 12 weeks. Students purchase “The Artist’s Way” and
will read a chapter before each class. Class consists of a “check-in” project
— really just playing with materials – then discussion of the week’s reading and exercises.
One hour is left to complete another project that is related to the theme of the week.
By the end of class, you will have an active creative practice, several finished art pieces to display,
as well as a handmade book containing your check-in projects.
All materials are provided except the book. Fee: $275 for 12 weeks, includes free Intro Session.
