Mini-Podcast: The Artist Date- A Tool for Creative Recovery

Artist Date Podcast

I am declaring June as Artist Date Month!  During this month, I will be challenging Instagram followers to schedule an Artist Date for each week to help inspire creativity!

To kick off this month-long celebration, I recorded a mini-podcast episode that:

  • introduces what an Artist Date is (based on the concept from Julia Cameron’s ground breaking book for creatives, The Artist’s Way) and

  • explains how Artist Dates can be used as a tool to help move past creative blocks

  • shares advice on moving past your personal hesitation regarding Artist Dates and scheduling them.

Follow me and watch my instagram page for additional information on the June #ArtistDateChallenge!
