Thanks to all of you who have asked if I’m going to teach an online class from the new book. YES! It starts on August 14. Best of all, I’m being hosted by Jacqui Graham’s very cool group, Artists of the Round Table. It’s a Yahoo Group, you do have to join to take the class.
The class will run for 10 weeks, covering a section of the book each week. You’ll have opportunities to do the exercises and post your work online. I’ll post comments as a creativity coach, not a critic.
The class will look like this:
There are two sections for each week–a portion to read (the square with the week number and date), and the homework–the part in the colored arrows.
The class will stay up beyond the time of the class if you want to catch up. I’m very excited to be teaching this class.
Best of all, there are only two requirement for the class: Sign up for the Yahoo Group, and buy the book. (That link takes you to my website, clicking the link will take you to amazon.com and give me a few pennies for sending you there.)
There is no additional charge for taking the class! If you want your book signed and live in Phoenix, please come to the book launch on July 27, 7 p.m. at Changing Hands bookstore. You can buy the book while you are there! Changing Hands is at the NW corner of S. McClintock and Guadalupe in Tempe. 6428 S. McClintock –it’s in the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s. Phone: (480) 730-0205. There will be desserts, and we’ll be making permission slips!

I have your book. Love it, I have found it so helpful as I learn about my creativity. What do I do now to join the course or am I too late?
Thanks for buying the book. I am grateful for every purchase. Above each post, in lighter type, is the date. I ran the course last year, when the book came out. Perhaps its time to run it again. I’ll give it some thought.

Yes, I was grateful when North Light offered me the free shipping–it makes the book far more accessible.

i can’t wait to take part in this! i am in desperate need of a creative community!!
You’ll have fun with us–community is what we do!
(Barbara, I love you!) Quinn – she’s buying me a copy of your book – and sending it to England – so I can take part! How cool is that? It’s the loveliest thing a friend has ever done for me… I am so excited!! =)))
Now THAT’s a good friend! Can’t wait to see all the art made in the class!
Quinn, you amaze me! I’m so excited about the book, the launch party and your upcoming class! I’ve blogged about it all, and can’t wait for Aug. 14th!
It’s finally all coming together! Hope to see you there!
Have fun at the book launch, Quinn! The class sounds wonderful; what a great thing for you to offer. I’m going to have to seriously consider your approach to creating a syllabus for the grad class I teach each summer! 🙂
I am so excited for your workshop to start! I have the book and already skimmed it … twice! I LOVE it!
I”m SO glad you do! I’m working on the class notes, and it looks like it will be really interesting–lots of room to do it your way!
The workshop is going to be such fun – I love the syllabus! I can’t wait to see what we all create as we go through the book.
You are so right–I cannot WAIT to see what people come up with in the different sections.
Love the syllabus. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if school teachers did things like that. It would get the kids’ attention.
I can’t wait for the ART class and also plan on seeing you Wed.
Congratulations on Everything!
I’m actually creating some syllabuses (syllabi) for teachers, but they won’t be written like this–has to get through approval process, and i’m sure that one won’t!
WooHoo!! Can’t wait! Thank you for sharing this with us and taking the time to put art into our life!
Thanks, JoHanna–I can’t wait to see what new and exciting work comes from this!
