What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

This online workshop will focus on identifying and reflecting on creative blocks and giving artists across disciplines (visual art, writing, design, music) tools for working through these obstacles in a sustainable way. Inspired by Julia Cameron’s The Artist's Way, and instructor Christine Garvey’s own experiences as an artist and educator, this workshop is for anyone who needs a gentle nudge to listen to their creative calling.

Over the course of the workshop we will cover:

  • Creative Self-Worth: How to strengthen your faith in the things you make
  • Fuel: How to stay motivated without comparing yourself to others
  • Obligation: How to find time for a creative project you care about
  • Abundance: How to see new opportunities in your creative profession
  • Play: How to let yourself experiment and thrive creatively
  • Champions: How to find people who share your creative values
Each category will provide exercises for reflection on these concepts. Through writing and group conversation, participants will reflect on and organize past experiences in a way that will help them identify obstacles and potential blocks. What is getting in the way? How can I negotiate that obstacle with kindness? How can I set achievable goals that will help me move forward? Participants must feel comfortable reflecting on and sharing personal experiences as relates to the workshop topic. The course hopes to facilitate community amongst participants, such that they can continue these meaningful conversations and support systems in the future.

Class will meet on Zoom. You'll be sent Zoom meeting info after enrollment and a PDF of the class presentation the day of.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

I'm currently offering credits for any cancellations made seven days or fewer to a class starting. I can't afford to do cash refunds right now, but credits are fine if the spot is canceled any time before the start date (even if less than 72 hours). Spots that are canceled more than seven days before the class starts are eligible for cash refunds.    

 ---- 

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.


We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!


Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 


Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
