We start August 13th, 2020
Thursdays from 6:00 - 7:00
This class lasts for 14 weeks. We meet about once a week, online, for one hour. Usually Thursdays from 6:00 - 7:00PM. You'll need to purchase the book and a journal in which to write in, in advance. It's an intense program. It does require a commitment to trek through the workshop.
We are a relaxed group. Going through the book takes 12 weeks but the additional 2 weeks is to allow time to get the class launched and understood. It takes time to get your footing.
Sometimes we miss a week to catch up. So it does end up being a little longer than 12 weeks.
"The Artist Way," by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing! It is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician but it is a lot about writing. If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It's about learning to pay attention." — Anne Lamott

This class is a mind-body-centered treatment- with a writing component.
Do you know that writing while grieving boosts the immune system and increases emotional and mental health. It's especially useful when there are things unsaid, emotions unshared, and no closure gained.

Making Your Socials Work For You
We'll take a wideview lens look at all the social media tools available to musicians and artists of all kinds - but then take a closer look at which are absolutely necessary for DIY artists who are using the internet as their storefront and promo machine. We'll make sure your platforms are working for you instead of against you by going over best practices and ways to keep the content and interest flowing.
