The Artist's Way

Creative Recovery Courses:

Arts Courses:

The Artist's Way is a programme designed by the artist Julia Cameron as a means to creative unblocking. Her book, The Artist's Way, is a manual for how to get started creatively!
"I myself was living this life and often found it challenging. What exactly needed to be done for the daily march to go more smoothly?  What stratagems could I devise to help people faced with so many obstacles of life?" (Cameron).

So by using the practical steps set out in The Artist's Way by Julia, you could put aside a few days creative retreat at Wykes Manor. Here you will be guided through the workbook or simply given the space to work whilst being fed and watered. What you will leave with will be renewed confidence and the sense of the starting of a journey, armed with ideas and suggestions to help steady you and cheer you on.
