The Artist’s Way – In-Person Facilitated Creativity Circle

13 Sessions (Saturday Group)*

 *We’ll meet 2-3 times each month + recorded sessions on off-weeks*

Meeting times are Saturdays from 9:00 - 11:00am; most sessions held at The ARTbar;  the last session will be a Sunday celebration at 4pm in Dana Point.

May 21st - August 28 (see details below for specifics)


If you have always wanted to go through The Artist’s Way book chapter by chapter with the support of an encouraging group, this is your opportunity!  The Artist’s Way is a program that helps you recover your creativity from a variety of blocks, including limiting beliefs, fear, self-sabotage, jealousy, guilt, additions, and other inhibiting forces, replacing them with artistic confidence and productivity.

Facilitated by Nicole Steiman, who has led dozens of Artist’s Way, creativity circles, and coaching groups over the last 17 years.  Nicole is a devoted morning page writer, artist date junkie and artist block overcomer.  She can confidently claim that had she not gone through The Artist’s Way herself, The ARTbar would not be here today!

Supplies Needed:  You will need the book The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron, along with basic art supplies you already have. (paper, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue sticks, etc.)

Each session will included discussion, encouragement, homework plus a facilitated group exercise to introduce the upcoming chapter.  Plan an average of 45 minutes to one hour per day for reading, artist dates and tasks (that are fun!) 


* up to 3 of the 13 sessions will not be attended in-person but will be pre-recorded and can be listened to at your convenience; the last session on Sunday, August 28 may be held in the evening at a special location to be announced; specific schedule details will be given out during the course of the group

* Price includes accountability each month with a personal email or 1/2 hour phone session with Nicole;

*  Special BONUS:  Attend Open Studio Sessions at a reduced price of only $15 instead of $25.  Why not meet your fellow Creative Circle members to do your weekly creative assignments?
