Milliande Artist Date
December 2008
Week 2



Take Your SELF " Out to Art"


What is an Artist Date ?

~ I have been hearing a lot about people chasing their muse, feeling in a creative block , uneasy to start projects that seem out of reach and generally just looking for inspiration

~ I first noticed "Artist Dates" mentioned in Julia Camerons Book of the same name ... but a lot of people find it hard to motivate themselves to actually "DO IT " rather than just read about it, think it great and then let it wash down the stream of thoughts that enter the mind and exit just as fast

Milliande Artist Date December 2008 Week 2


~ Taking time out for Art is often seen as a secondary priority and often ends up even further down the list of "Have to's

~ Another time there is soo much inspiration, so many possible arty avenues , so many started and never finished projects that it seems like navigating this maze turns into a struggle rather than fun

~ Making a commitment to nurture yourself can be a very liberating starting point on your personal journey to honor your creative self

~ Now Letha and I have been talking - and she mentioned that sometimes it takes a little push for people to get creative, an incentive , a challenge that helps break out of the daily rhythm of "Have to's" and embrace "ME TIME "
~ Taking the "Artist Date" idea a little further,
I would like to offer "Milliande Artist Dates " for Milliande Creativity Club Members
