This is a spiritual workshop aimed at freeing your creativity. Discover (or rediscover) your creative self! Yes, you can! This 10-week workshop is based on "The Artist's Way" book by Julia Cameron and will be facilitated by Jess Olivito. Join in readings, discussions, and, yes, art-making! 

Because of the book's fabulous content, we wanted to offer this opportunity to others in our circles. Especially those who feel “creatively blocked.” Self-care is the focus of the course...suggesting that you to take yourself on little creative adventures known as “Artist Dates”… it’s just an eye opening experience! 

The art projects each week are simplistic - intended to "stir" the creative process...there is no formal art instruction. Instead, participants will explore different mediums and materials as "play." The focus of the artwork is NOT the final product but on the “process” of creating something and being unblocked. It involves fellowship, discussion and reflection about what we are learning in the book. 

Summer vacations planned? No problem, you can miss a couple and still be able to function, as long as you're reading the book.

Workshop Fee - $100 (includes materials for the weekly, small art projects). Proceeds will benefit the mission of The Sozo Group & Peace by Piece Ministries. 

Why are we charging? Ministries have lots of expenses (materials, space, advertising, websites, etc).... but please realize we are not charging for our time. The book can be bought on Amazon for under $20. 

*Are you struggling to the point where $100 is not possible? Indicate your need for a scholarship by emailing jess@thesozogroup.org for other arrangements. Our mission is serve all who have a strong desire to participate.
