Jumpstart your creativity! Rediscover your purpose and passion. Experience a more creative and fulfilled life.

This transformational workshop is based on the seminal book on the subject of creativity, The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.  Each weekly two-hour session focuses on one of the twelve chapters, doubling up on a few chapters to finish the course in nine weeks.  With an emphasis on accompanying self-discovery exercises and activities, The Artist's Way is
a ground-breaking process that has helped millions of people worldwide successfully move forward with their creative goals. The non-judgmental structure of the workshop ncourages new ideas and is an invaluable guide to successfully living the artist's life.

Perhaps your dream is to write a novel, paint a picture, perform on stage, start a business or simply be more creative in your daily life but you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or unsure. Now is your opportunity to not only accomplish your goals, but to change your life in the process.

During the nine week program you will:

Expand your creative vision

  •  Learn how to "unblock"
  •  Discover ways to make time for your creative projects
  •  Find out how to handle critics
  •  Realize that wanting your work to be "perfect" is a roadblock to getting it done
  •  Become skilled at dealing with creative U-turns.
  •  Experience the joy of creative camaraderie!

 For the course you will need a copy of the book, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron. You will also need a simple, spiral-bound notebook for daily journal writing. Nothing fancy - a school notebook works great.

Prior to the first meeting you'll be required to read the introductory chapter about the basic tools.  Please note: This is not an art class. No artistic or writing skill is required, simply a commitment to connect with your creative self.

 Facilitator / Workshop
Presenter Profile: Diane Fisher is an award-winning designer & entrepreneur, published author, mixed-media artist, architectural color consultant, former gallery director and artist-in-residency recipient. She facilitates Artist's Way workshops and offers classes and private coaching sessions developed to help people grow creatively.Part cheerleader and part creativity coach, Diane is no stranger to creative challenges.

In the early 1990's, while living in New Mexico, she was fortunate enough to meet and be inspired by Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way.  

 Needing a little creative nudging of her own at the time, she joined one of the first Artist's Way groups formed in Santa Fe where she met weekly with working and aspiring artists, screenwriters, actors, painters, sculptors, gallery owners, and performers who all came together to be part of this amazing process.  Diane credits her mid-life creative recovery to
having gone through the The Artist's Way, which was a turning-point in helping her navigate a difficult life-transition and co-author a book on the subject.

Since then, Diane has participated in and led numerous Artist's Way groups and keeps her artist journals close at hand.  She has recently relocated to Cannon Beach, to continue her creative endeavors and share what she's learned along the way.

Diane first gained national recognition from features by Good Morning America, The Robb Report, Better Homes & Gardens and Victoria magazines for her imaginative designs for A-list clients such as Yves St. Laurent, Neiman-Marcus, Ritz-Carlton Hotels and the United States Olympic Committee.
