Book Love On Sale Now
In her book, The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron recommends artist dates with yourself. She writes, “An artist date is a block of time, . . . committed to nurturing your creative consciousness, your inner artist. . . a play date that you preplan . . . you do not take anyone on this artist date.” On her website she says, “The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic”– think mischief more than mastery.”
Last summer, I decided to adapt the solo artist date and create a family artist date—a playful time for creating, imagining, dreaming — together. Read “Planning For Your Summer’s Artists Dates” for all the details and links to the posts, many which were written by children’s authors.
