Discover (or re-discover) and tap into your own creative power. Using the theories of creativity and art-making expressed by Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way and Elizabeth Gilbert in Big Magic as guideposts, participants play, discover, and embrace process rather than perfection to see what the universe has in store for them that day. Each class session will focus on a new project and technique, working with colored pencils, watercolor, pen and ink, acrylic paints, building 3 dimensional forms, and collage.
