Events - The Artist's Way - A Weekly Video Conferencing Book Club

The Artist’s Way is a creative course for every adult who feels creatively “blocked”. It doesn’t matter if you write, sew, paint, draw, take photographs, or are searching for a new creative outlet for the first time ~ you are invited to join! This book has been recognized as one of the top 100 best self-help books of all time. It is a book on overcoming “blocks”, creative recovery, and inspiration.

The program will be facilitated by Sandy Nass Misiak. Sandy has led 3 different Artist's Way groups or “creative clusters” over the past 15 years.

How to get the most out of the journey & discussions
This is not a “read & discuss” type of book club. It requires hands-on, exploration activities/exercises each week. As a participant in the club, make the experience worthwhile by committing to the following:
(1) Read one chapter per week.
(2) Complete 1-2 of the tasks at the end of each chapter each week.
(3) Write 'Morning pages’, otherwise known as daily journaling.
(4) Take yourself on a creative “PLAY” date, referred to as 'Artist Dates' once per week (a time to be playful or to try something new!).
(5) Attend the weekly SKYPE video-conferencing meetings. The role of the facilitator is not to TEACH but to facilitate and guide the discussion. Note that the creative journey will be unique for each individual.
