 We are excited to announce a new course in partnership with Leslie Fleming-Mitchell called “The Artists Way”. This 12-week course is a guided journey through the book of the same name, using small group discussions, exercises and accountability to complete the program. This course will help the student remove blocks, expand confidence, productivity, and originality. Hone your creative genius, develop resilience, risk-taking, effective habits, and perseverance.

The cost of this course is $350, but because we feel so strongly that our demographic of student artists should ALL be taking this course, we offer it to any current student or graduate of ours at $275. This is an invaluable addition to your course study at The Second City and an unprecedented value for a 12-week course.

Created by Julia Cameron and Mark Bryan, The Artists Way is a comprehensive program to recover your creativity from a variety of blocks, including limiting beliefs, fear, self-sabotage, jealousy, guilt, addictions, and other inhibiting forces, replacing them with artistic confidence and productivity.

Why take The Artists Way class? In the words of others who have completed the course, “This course will change your life” and “This book is an amazing guide to recovering your creative core.” Taking the class will keep you on track with the timeline of the book and keep you accountable. Not only that, it will enhance your creative life, sharpen your creative focus and free you from many of the bad habits that keep you from being fully creative.

If you are a current student of The Second City, you are already taking the first steps to unleashing the artists within you. This class is for ANY creative person looking to actively unleash their creative power.
