"Fuel Your Creativity" with Kathleen Cavender
If you are creative, and would like to be more so, here's an opportunity to be inspired. Artist Kathleen Cavender is teaching "Fuel Your Creativity", a course on the creative process: how to engage it and how keep it flowing. It will wrestle with some "demons" like fear of failure and success, etc. The workshop will be held in her studio, 1717 West 10th, four Sundays from 1-5pm, March 13 through April 3. The cost is $160 a person or $300 per couple. Materials included. Seating is limited. Here's what one workshop participant said: "I attended the CAVA workshops with my creativity pilot light in economy mode: I left on fire. Kathleen blends passion with practicality, and her homework/heartwork assignments evoke dynamic, lasting results. A candid and sensitive guide, she fosters vision as well as strategizing, healing as well as hope. And what a great way to connect with kindred spirits. I'm stoked!"
