Often, when I talk to people I meet in Cleveland about The Artist's Way,
they haven't heard of it, but they're intrigued and want to learn more.
That's why I'm so excited to introduce "CLE-ative Groove," a dedicated 12-week course based on Julia Cameron's best-selling book
here this fall. The Artist's Way
has been an incredibly transformative tool in my own life—I studied it for many years when I lived in Los Angeles, where the book and corresponding classes helped me navigate a job transition from the entertainment industry back to my journalism roots, a difficult period of fertility treatments, and various other turning points in my life.
I wanted to share the class with FreshWater
readers, as it's clear many of you are dreamers and doers. Despite the title, the Artist's Way
isn't just for artists—it's for anyone looking to reclaim their creative spark or kickstart their art, whether it be writing, painting, starting a business, or [insert passion here]. The book speaks to creatives, entrepreneurs, and/or anyone looking to make a necessary shift personally or professionally; the class melds self-care and self-discovery via interactive exercises and creative connection within the group.
is being held at The Green House
coworking space in Euclid this fall, and dates run from September 25 to December 11. (The class meets every Tuesday from 7 to 9:30 p.m.) FreshWater
