Best-selling creativity author Julia Cameron (“The Artist’s Way”) has written an Artist’s Way program geared for those at midlife and for retirees in her new book: “It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again: Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond”. Creativity Instructor Kate Gavigan will lead students through the 12 chapters and learn some easy and useful Artist’s Way tools that can assist them in enhancing their creativity and in turn, their life. Attendees will participate in fun creative tasks, explore the benefits of memoir reflection and learn how to implement the creative tools. Exploring your creativity at any age can instill in you a youthful wonder and can help you to see your midlife years as a time of fun and adventure. This class can be a great jumpstart to assist you in doing just that! No prerequisites necessary.
