Recovering a Sense of Safety: The Artist's Way Begins


My life changed the day I signed up for an Artist’s Way Creative Cluster with Gretchin at Scarlet Star Studios in Portland. I was so profoundly changed, that with Gretchin’s blessing, I began offering my own version of Creative Clusters in Salem. My first group was several years ago and last night a new Creative Cluster began, this one in my brand new Alley Art Studio. Ahhhh, home again. Four beautiful and eager women gathered in a circle to begin their own journeys of transformation. For the next 12 weeks, we will gather weekly to discuss the tenants of Julia Cameron’s Artist’s Way, talk about personal stuff, and get our hands a little messy with a variety of creative projects. We'll be laughing together, crying together, and creating together. And once a week I'll post a little blurb about our meeting. Last night we got to know each other, then did a collage project. Here's the new studio space ready for the special guests to arrive . . .


It didn't take long for everyone to get comfortable and settled in.


Let the cutting and gluing begin.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Can't believe you're in Salem--we'll probably be moving there in a couple of years after I retire!

Hope someday life will afford me the opportunity to take this class... Your studio looks so inviting! Can't wait for the October classes!
