The Artists Way: 12-week course for blasting through blocks and increasing creative flow in your life. With inspirational facilitator, Debs Hoy.
New Course Dates Coming Soon.
£100 Registration fee + £8 per week OR £180 if all paid in advance. To find out more about this course, read Debs Hoy’s blog about the course.
The Artists Way is a seminal text and workbook by Julia Cameron that is designed to take you on a personal journey to discover what prevents you from fulfilling your creative yearnings.
Cameron provides practical tasks and exercise to get your creativity flowing again and participants find they are able to enjoy indulgent and expressive moments doing creative actions they’ve always longed for, or never even realized they enjoy!
The benefits of following the course in a group (or cluster as Cameron calls them!) means you are not alone in this sometimes challenging but potentially transformational journey. You will have an anchor to help keep you with the pace of the weekly readings, and the group will swap experiences and ideas each week. There will be light weekly ‘check-ins’ but you will never be asked to share your personal writing with the group. Some weeks will focus on doing activities together and other times participants will work individually during the sessions. The course also provides time out from a busy life where you can just stop and create things!
Debs Hoy is a professional Fine Artist and facilitator who has nurtured children and adults through creative learning and creative recovery. She has taken part in the Artists Way in Philadelphia and facilitated an online cluster group of international participants. Debs has found that weekly group meetings are a successful way to undertake and complete the Artists Way.
In addition to weekly meetings, the course requires a commitment from each participant to work at home each day on writing ‘Morning Pages’ and to take yourself on one ‘Artist Date’ per week outside of class time.
Testimonials from Previous Course Participants
“Debs has encouraged me not to give up!!!! I’m doing the morning pages half the week, and I’ve completed my first painting in decades” GW, London
“I’ve been so busy creating, I haven’t had time for much else at all! It’s been like a tornado of creativity. So many of my usual blocks of perfectionism and procrastination have just fallen away. When I started The Artist’s Way, I remember wishing to be creatively prolific, motivated, and to just flow with ease and abundance, and I have been doing all of that and then some! It’s absolutely wonderful.” Lucy Patterson
“It really pays to spend time alone filling your inner creative self: I’m sure that’s the reason why I was up at 6am doing my morning pages, and I wrote twice as much as usual!” Lucinda Dunn
