They will challenge you to discover “your blocks,” welcome them into the group, acknowledge them for what they are and perhaps where they originated so you can be freed up to CREATE! This is a course about the process of remaining un-tethered, unencumbered, and completely free to move into a productive and fulfilling creative space.
• You will learn the stages of the creative process
• Understand how to choose your next subject
• Start your work with confidence
• Work in the moment
• Complete your work
• Bring it to the public
A requirement of the course is to purchase the book, Fearless Creating, by Eric Maisel, which is available at the Vero Beach Book Center. Your homework is to read Chapters 1 and 2 before the first class.
