Start date: Sunday, 13th January 2019
End date: Sunday, 31st March 2019
Time: Sundays, 10am - 12pm
Location: The Barbican Centre, William Street, Drogheda, Co. Louth
Fee: €240.00 per person
Note 1: This fee covers you for the entire program, that is, 2 hours per session for 12 Sundays. I'll limit the program to 8 people, but if demand calls for it, I'll look into running a second group. Please pay in full below to guarantee your place, or drop me a line. Payable in full up to Friday January 11th, just use the booking link at the end ;-).
Note 2: You'll need your own copy of 'The Artist's Way' book. Any version or 'year printed' will do, not much has changed over the 20+ years since first published. If you can manage it, read the first chapter before our first session. I've given some links below for purchasing the book, but if you have any questions, just drop me an email or a text message!
Note 3: St. Patrick's Day falls on a Sunday this year, so depending on everyone's availability, we'll just move that session to Saturday 16th March, not Sunday 17th.
'TAW 12-week program' - course details
Give me an overview!
In this 12-week program, we work through Cameron's much-loved program for self-care and creative recovery. We take a chapter a week, we do not attempt all the tasks and exercises (the body is willing, but 'life' does not permit). Safe and slow, fun and friendly, and best of all, no skills required!
Who's it for?
Anyone, everyone, ALL walks of life. You don’t need to be a writer or an artist to be creative! If you fear you're not talented enough or you're too blocked or you're too busy or you're too old, or you need experience and skills and qualifications to be creative, then give ‘The Artist's Way’ a try. There you'll find space, compassion, and a place where your creativity can show itself in safety.
What will we do?
Every session we'll get together, check in, and take small steps towards our creative goals. You'll get to talk about what worked for you and what didn't. We'll discuss material that's loosely related to the next chapter, dabble in an easy 'make-and-do' activity, write a little, and have fun.
I've got the book, so why should I join a group?
Lots of us have The Artist's Way book at home, but you might have noticed there's a LOT in it ;-) It's easier to 'do' the program in a group, or as Cameron calls it, a 'creative cluster'. So it's a group, but it's not school, you cannot do anything wrong, and there's no one to rap knuckles (I facilitate the group but I do the program myself right along with you). Just turn up, tune in, and watch as the creativity comes. I suggest a bit of 'homework', the easy and fun variety that depends on time and energy you had available. And if you didn't get the time to read the chapter or do the homework, relax. The Artist's Way is about compassion, not detention!
Please note, this course is for adults only.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
