12 Week Workshop.
No Classes on 10/29 or 11/26.
12/10 is last session.
12/17 is a post-class gathering (optional).

This workshop is aimed at freeing your creativity. Discover (or rediscover) your creative self! Yes, you can! This 12-week workshop is based on "The Artist's Way" book by Julia Cameron and will be facilitated by Jess Olivito and MariJayne Manganiello. Join in readings, discussions, and, yes, art-making! Will include coloring, painting, jewelry, mosaics, watercolors, oil pastels, mixed media, scratch art and much, much more!

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 for 1....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.

Have a couple of conflicts during the course of the workshop? No problem, you can miss a couple classes and still be able to function, as long as you're reading the book.

Workshop Fee - $100 (includes materials for each week's art projects). The proceeds benefit Peace by Piece Ministries. Why are we charging? We have expenses (materials, space, advertising, websites, etc).... but know we're not charging for our time. The book can be bought on Amazon for under $20 or found at used book stores.

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