last chance to find your muse (aka artist's way)

by gl. at 11:32 pm

i can't believe i haven't posted about the next round of artist's way yet. technically, the rsvp deadline for this is tomorrow, but i'll (obviously) be extending it. :)

this is essentially what i've been promoting:

Give yourself the time & space this year to find your muse at our abundant and inspiring studio! Whether you love visual, literary or performing arts, when you commit to finding your muse you will also find confidence, courage and compassionate companions. Your facilitator, Gretchin Lair, is a creative advocate known for her "splendid mix of art and honesty" and "quiet leadership."

"Find Your Muse" is based on The Artist's Way (if you've tried to get through The Artist's Way alone, come join us!). But we go far beyond the book, actively exploring a wide range of art activities designed to encourage your muse and stretch every aspect of your creativity. After you find your muse you'll be ready to create fearlessly & truthfully!

Two choices for Spring 2007: only $260 for 13 weeks!
(RSVP and $130 deposit due by January 23)

Tuesday nights
6:30-9 p.m.
January 30-April 24

Wednesday mornings
10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
January 31-April 25

(If a creative cluster doesn't work for you this time, there's always our independent support option, where you can find your muse on your own schedule!)

this year i hired posterchild to do the flyering since i hate that so very much. next time i'll probably do the same but with a much longer lead time: my reach is broader than she expected. :)

i also did the usual rounds of lists, craft calendars, meetup, wweek, mercury, craigslist, etc. my perpetual agony is that google refuses to rank us within the first 500 hits for a "portland artist's way" search. why, google, why? everything else you link to links to us, but we're buried on page 10. i just discovered the unitarian church finally got their class schedule up for the first time this year, and they're right at the top of the list. how does that happen? (google also won't show scarlet star studios as a useful hit when searching for "gretchin lair," either. between that and spam filters marking our mail as spam, it's difficult to have the faith in the internet i once had.)
