In eight sessions, creative coach, producer and manager Joanne Zippel will address essential principles required to thrive as an artist:

The Inner Work— staying connected with your drive and courage to act, clarifying your vision, purpose and intentions, letting go of the negative behaviors and belief systems that hold you back from acting on your vision, maintaining a positive and grounded state of being as the foundation for your success.

The Outer Work— identifying and taking the practical action steps required to manifest your creative vision, creating community around you and your work and balancing your creative life with your personal life.





The Benefits of Building Community Around Your Creative Self

You are not alone. Creating your art can be a lonely experience at times, but when you’re in the workshop, you won’t feel isolated. You’ll be in the same boat with other artists who can relate to your challenges in trying to get your art out into the world.

When artists get together and support each other, good things happen! Experience the synergies and synchronicities that take place when a group of like-minded creative people share ideas and resources with each other.

Take your time and think of your career in a strategic way over the 4 month period of the workshop. With a session held every other week, you’ll have plenty of time to act on the commitments you make to yourself.
