    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?

    --------------------------------------------------

    Detailed Schedule:

    Please plan to be at as many sessions as you can, although we realize that you may need to miss one here or there.

    Bible Journaling Retreat, $79


    Our Premier of this ongoing workshop includes a goody bag of fun items to use during the retreat and beyond!

    Optional:  Bring a Bible to journal in (we suggest Journaling Bibles that have a space on each margin).  We will provide a sketchbook and sample pages to try techniques on, so using your Bible is not necessary.

    Description:

    Take Bible journaling to a deeper level, beyond just illustrating the words!   Learn tips for adding art and personal messages into your Bible, create together in our studio using verses that are special to you, and try a process that Nicole uses that makes Bible journaling personal to you by experiencing verses instead of just reading them.  We will explore a variety of tools from the monks and saints of ancient days of Christianity that will bring more creativity to your spiritual journey, including word studies, Lectio Divina, the Examen, and a beautifully creative process called imaginary prayer. You’ll not only learn how to add the Bible into your journaling, but also how to add journaling DIRECTLY into your Bible . . . with gels, adhesives, art mediums, stamps, writing and coloring tools and more.  This retreat allows plenty of time to play in the studio!

    Note: this retreat is Bible-based, encouraging you to use your favorite Scriptures and experience them in your own personal way in a private dialogue between you and God.  As a optional resource, we offer Map 5 from the Listen to My Life Series (www.OneLifeMaps.com) as a reflection tool afterward.

    9 - 12:  Intro to Bible Journaling techniques

    12 - 1:  Lunch & Share

    1 - 3:  Play and Create using techniques!

    Intro to Zentangle


    Zentangle is the practice of creating beautiful images from repeating patterns. 

    There are over 100 patterns in Zentangle. Each pattern is made up of easy, yet deliberate, strokes of the pen, using combinations of dots, lines and arcs. The pattern is usually non-representational in and of itself, but when the strokes are combined together they make an exquisite impact.

    This class is done to relaxation music in our inspirational studio where you can put your intention into your creations. Closed beverages suggested to protect artwork.


    First session: $35, includes basic Zentangle kit
    Once you take this class and learn the philosophy and HOW EASY it is, you can take ANY of our Zentangle classes!  
    Just bring your kit along . . .

    The ART Inside Me Retreat: $59


    Being creative is all about nurturing Possibility.  And we can all use a little more Possibility in our lives!!

    In a spirit of childlike pLaY, we will make our own custom life-size paper doll and turn it into a super-hero as we take our ideas onto canvas and explore the art inside us!  Questions are a huge part of possibility, so we’ll introduce a great tool for working through questions and ideas, called the Curiosity Map.

    Participants will leave with their own canvas wall hanging, Curiosity Map, journal and a monthly calendar of prompts to encourage the mindset of Possibility all month long!

    Intro to Zentangle


    Zentangle is the practice of creating beautiful images from repeating patterns. 

    There are over 100 patterns in Zentangle. Each pattern is made up of easy, yet deliberate, strokes of the pen, using combinations of dots, lines and arcs. The pattern is usually non-representational in and of itself, but when the strokes are combined together they make an exquisite impact.

    This class is done to relaxation music in our inspirational studio where you can put your intention into your creations. Closed beverages suggested to protect artwork.


    First session: $35, includes basic Zentangle kit
    Once you take this class and learn the philosophy and HOW EASY it is, you can take ANY of our Zentangle classes!  
    Just bring your kit along . . .

    For even more fun . . . stay for the afternoon Zentangle Open Studio and Trade.  Keep working on your patterns or Zentangle-Inspired Art.  Participating in the trade is optional but fun!

    ZENTANGLE Collaborative!
    OR OPEN STUDIO TIME


    This month we have a fun optional project for you:  a Collaborative Sepia Opus Tile!  

    To participate, purchase a tile ($5) from the studio, then create your string and one pattern.  Rotate your tile to another participant and leave with a finished tile that has been worked on by other artists.  It's a fun way to see other patterns and styles of tangling -- and leave with a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork!

    This special Zentangle Open Studio time is perfect, especially for our Zentangle artists who are jazzed and inspired from the trade to work on the next month's trade.  

    Participate in our special collaborative or work on your own projects that you bring! So come and join us for some fun, friendship and some treats!

    Cost: $25

    Note:  This is not a teaching workshop, but there will be plenty of tangling resources to use.  To participate in the collaborative, we suggest you first take the Intro to Zentangle Workshop.  If you haven't, you are still welcome to come enjoy the session and play - we will help you create some patterns and jump right in!

    SketchCrawl Retreat, $59

    All materials provided

    Artists are good listeners .  When you draw something, you can listen to it in a deeper way.  Can’t draw?  Well don’t give up!  This retreat is designed to share a few techniques that will help you loosen up and discover how fun drawing can be – even if you are convinced that you can’t do it! Imagine adding quick sketches into your journal or scribbling images on paper to remember them for years . . . and liking them!  This is a breakthrough class for many people who feel they aren’t creative.  Drawing helps us to see the world differently and preserve moments in time.  And yes, YOU CAN DRAW!  We promise we will make it fun and easy!

    Using techniques from the ARTstarters book, we will expore the Mindset of Listening through Drawing and pLaY with the following techniques:

    Scribble Drawings

    Gesture Drawings

    Contour Drawings

    Blind Self-Portraits

    And finishing touches that make even rough sketches look cool!

    We’ll end with a fun SketchCrawl around Downtown Santa Ana to practice all your new drawing skills and start filling your journal before you even leave!

    Participants will leave with their own journal filled with examples and sketches, as well as a monthly calendar to continue the Creative Mindset of Drawing and Listening.

    Intro to Zentangle


    Zentangle is the practice of creating beautiful images from repeating patterns. 

    There are over 100 patterns in Zentangle. Each pattern is made up of easy, yet deliberate, strokes of the pen, using combinations of dots, lines and arcs. The pattern is usually non-representational in and of itself, but when the strokes are combined together they make an exquisite impact.

    This class is done to relaxation music in our inspirational studio where you can put your intention into your creations. Closed beverages suggested to protect artwork.


    First session: $35, includes basic Zentangle kit
    Once you take this class and learn the philosophy and HOW EASY it is, you can take ANY of our Zentangle classes!  
    Just bring your kit along . . .

    Gravestone Rubbings & Wabi-Sabi Retreat, $79

    Wabi-Sabi refers to the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection.  It’s an eye for the simple yet poetic things in life, almost of philosophy of being.  What the rest of the world might see as less than perfect , to an artist can be fascinating and beautiful!

    Bring:  Your Camera (optional) and a picnic snack

    Wear: comfortable shoes and clothing (prepare to walk off the path!)

    Transportation:  we will start at the Santora and then drive to the town cemetery

    All other supplies provided

    We will start with some fun exploration around the Santora building as we practice Wabi-Sabi with our artist eyes, taking pictures and rubbings.  We will then compile them into a Japanese bound book and add thoughts that encourage us to look at life differently.

    Then we will continue our tour over to the Santa Ana Cemetery, which is part of Fairhaven Memorial Park, to collect some historical rubbings and end with a picnic share.  Participants can leave from there, or carpool back to The ARTbar.

    Intro to Zentangle


    Zentangle is the practice of creating beautiful images from repeating patterns. 

    There are over 100 patterns in Zentangle. Each pattern is made up of easy, yet deliberate, strokes of the pen, using combinations of dots, lines and arcs. The pattern is usually non-representational in and of itself, but when the strokes are combined together they make an exquisite impact.

    This class is done to relaxation music in our inspirational studio where you can put your intention into your creations. Closed beverages suggested to protect artwork.


    First session: $35, includes basic Zentangle kit
    Once you take this class and learn the philosophy and HOW EASY it is, you can take ANY of our Zentangle classes!  
    Just bring your kit along . . .

    Paint Your Heart Out! Retreat, $79

    (and Introducing the Paint Your Heart Out Pilgrimmage!)

    What is possible for you if you pursue your life with a creator’s passion?  And what is possible for you when you start to feel the depth of your Creator’s love for YOU, and see yourself as a work of art as well as an artist yourself?

    If you have you ever wondered what you want to be “when you grow up” or thought that life would be so easy if you just could find your passion, this is the experience that can change your life!  What if passion isn’t something you FIND, as much as something you POUR OUT – on your life and those around you . . .

    The Paint Your Heart Out Retreat will introduce the concept of ARTrageous love as we create a large-scale painting to represent what matters most to us in life.  No painting experience is necessary!  We will use easy step-by-step painting techniques to paint our heart in many layers (like our lives), resulting in dimension and depth. 

    The Paint Your Heart Out Pilgrimmage is a challenge to continue to add something to your painting over the next few months as we pour out love on the things that are most important to us and take notice of the things we are most passionate about.  At the end of the Pilgrimmage we will have a series of paintings, one over the other, and a collection of photos that show our changing heart through the experience.

    Please bring:  a large canvas or surface of your choice (at least 16” x 20”, the larger the better, if you have space!)

    All paint and other materials provided during class.
