Undergo this life changing journey. One that will guide you into and through a deepening into your artistic soul. If you love Mixed Media, this journey was designed for You!
Artist women are natural visionaries. Yet some artists, some creatives have not awakened to this deep quality within that often lays slumbering until something significant in our life jars it awake. I don't want to jar it awake, I want it to be a beautifully intentional process of awakening, a choice to open the portal within you and allow through the magnificence of you!
If you have become burned out over taking too many online art programs and find yourself in a slump, this gentle journey will help kick start you again.
Imagine that I am right there beside you for 13 weeks on an insightful journey into your creative juices. We will discover what makes you tick, what inspires you, what gets in your way, how you might waste your time and energy.
Julie Cameron wrote "The Artist's Way" in 1992. For 28 years women around the planet have read her book, formed study groups and circles based around it. I found my way to it in 2010. The first time through it propelled me back into my artistry. Since that time, I've gone back through it twice. With important self actualization things in my life, threes a charm and on that third time around, which was in 2019, I was guided to develop "The Artist Way" with a focus solely on the painter.
Though I use Julie's book as a guideline, you will find my program to be a just as soulful as hers but drastically transformed and designed for the painter. And yes, I will encourage you during the 13 weeks to read sections of her book, though doing so is only suggested and never mandatory.
Come take a journey with me and together we'll walk into your soul Artist to artist, hand to hand, The Artists Way beckons us to step into our inspiration, into the spiritual experience of creativity which is mystical. Opening our awareness to what must be made through the act of intentional creativity. Making our art, we make artful lives. Making our art, we meet firsthand the hand of our Creator.
Once you register you will receive entrance into the classroom, with links to all recordings. During your 12 weeks, I am available to you for any questions or assistance you might require, simply contact me.
No matter what your age or your life path, whether making art is your career or your hobby or a dream, it is not too late or too egotistical or too selfish or too silly to work on your creativity. Creativity is an experience, a spiritual experience. It does not matter which way you think of it: creativity leading to spirituality or spirituality leading to creativity. In fact, there is no distinction between the two. In the face of such experience, the whole question of belief is rendered obsolete. As Carl Jung answered the question of belief late in his life, "I don't believe, I know."
The following spiritual principles are the bedrock on which creative recovery and discovery will be built as we journey together.
1, Creativity is the natural order of life. Life is energy: pure creative energy.
2. There is an underlying, in-dwelling creative force infusing all of life -- including ourselves.
3. When we open ourselves to our creativity, we open ourselves to the creator's creativity within us and our lives.
4. We are, ourselves, creations. And we, in turn, are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves.
5. Creativity is a Divine gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to MotherFatherGodGoddessAllThatIs.
6. The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our true nature.
7. When we open ourselves to exploring our creativity, we open ourselves to God, Goddess, Great Spirit: good orderly direction.
8. As we open our creative channel to the creator, many gentle but powerful changes are to be expected.
9. It is safe to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity.
10. Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a divine source. As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.
As such there is a necessary time commitment during the 12-week journey of about 3 hours each week--15 - 30 minutes a day, or slightly more if you choose and a few hours for your weekly creative time. This modest commitment to using the tools can yield tremendous results within the twelve weeks of the course. The same tools, used over a longer period, can alter the trajectory of a lifetime.
Each week special projects are given for you to create and through creating, learn and experience specific tools. Tools not only to strengthen your artistic craft, but tools also of personal conscious transformation.
What you receive with this program:
This is a journey of your creative recovery or perhaps a creative rebirthing. There will be a rhythm to each week. This allows for greater support and also the development of positive creative habits that form and become a normal way of life for you by the completion of our 12-week journey.
To do this, I will use some tools: Weekly Meditation, weekly Seed Journaling, Daily Doodle, Artist Date, and Creation Time.
I set the weekly program to begin each new week every Sunday, with a suggested manner in which to work being to complete any assigned reading, the weekly meditation and seed journaling on Sundays, and use Monday - Friday to perform the Daily Doodles. Choose which day of the week will be your weekly Artist Date and then keep it on that day each week. Lastly, I recommend assigning Saturdays as your Creation Time. This is only a suggestion, yours might need to be different.
My point here is to set YOUR WEEKLY SCHEDULE and then commit to it for the 12-weeks. However, because this is a solo journey, you are welcome to take as long as you need to complete, but I highly recommend approaching it as an intensive. By doing so, you will get so much more out of it and achieve greater results.
