The Artist's Way Refresher
Tutors: Catherine Rees
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next start dates: Wednesday 08 March 2017
Using the book The Artist's Way
by Julia Cameron.
This five week Artist's Way short course refresher, is designed for those already familiar with the Artist's Way. Maybe you’ve already worked through the book, or completed the course at Evolution. Maybe you’re still committed to pages and dates and want to deepen and further your creative journey, or maybe you’ve let your practices lapse, and want some encouragement to get back on track.
Maybe you just want the support of being in a group with likeminded people.
The course will be a mixture of talking and doing, with playful exercises designed to identify our dreams and any blocks which might be standing in the way of fulfilling them. We’ll review key points from the Artists Way, and draw also from Julia Cameron’s other works- Walking in this World, and Vein of Gold.
You will need a copy of the book to attend the course, and to get the most out of your attendance you should set aside extra time during the week for assignments.
The Artist’s Way
The Artist’s Way movement began more than two decades ago as author Julia Cameron shared her ideas with a few friends in her living room. It continues to be a seminal text on creativity and an international best seller on how to unlock the natural creativity inherent in all of us.
The basic assumption of The Artist’s Way is that you do not have to learn how to be more creative; instead you need to free your natural creativity. Our creativity can be blocked, and also unlocked.
