Creative Strategy: A Hero’s Journey to Imagine and Achieve Your Project

March 18, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$15 – $65

You’ve got a great idea for a creative project, but you don’t know where to begin. Or, you’ve started a project but it’s stalled out, and you don’t know how to move it forward. Or you’ve made good progress, but now you feel daunted by what it will take to complete your project. This class series is for you!

Using the Hero’s Journey mythic framework, these classes will help you strategize to move past blocks and finish your project. Journal prompts based on portions of the Hero’s journey will focus your imagination for your project.

This class is for all kinds of creatives. Visual artists, performers, academics, and creative business owners can benefit from using this process to start projects, re-energize projects, or move projects toward completion.

This is a 4-part series, which can be purchased as a series or as single classes.

Part 1: Setting Out: Beginning Your Creative Quest
Part 2: Crossing the Threshold: Choosing Structure
Part 3: Through the Ordeal: Facing Your Fear, Finding New Life
Part 4: The Journey Home: Rededicating to Complete the Quest

This class will take place via zoom. The link will be sent to you via email after registration.
