Cross Keys Artists and Writers Workshop Meets Tuesday, May 3rd

The Cross Keys Artists and Writers Workshop will be gathering Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. We are still in the beginning of a 12-session creativity workshop that focuses on what makes one an artist, where creativity comes from, and how to find your muse and get “unstuck” creatively. We are using Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way as our basic text. As we go through the course, we’ll be working on individual projects we bring to the meetings. For me, this will be a perfect opportunity to get unstuck with a screenplay I’ve been trying to finish. Perhaps you have a pet project you’ve been itching to complete, but find yourself hopelessly deadlocked. We encourage you to join us the first and third Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 8:00.
