FreshWater editor to teach 12-week Artist's Way course at The Green House starting in February

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. (In fact, I'll be making an "espresso pitch" about it at Creative Mornings this Friday if you want to join us!)

That's why I'm so excited to once again offer "CLE-ative Groove," a dedicated 12-week course based on Julia Cameron's best-selling book here this winter. 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.

The class is being held at The Green House coworking space in Euclid this fall, and dates run from February 5 to April 30, with one off week on March 5. (The class meets every Tuesday from 7 to 9:30 p.m.) FreshWater readers can get a discount of 20 percent off by entering the code FRESHWATER when registering here.

Hope to see you there! Feel free to email me at [email protected] with any questions or curiosities.
