12 - Week Course Plan

July 12 - September 30

  • You will receive weekly email suites with Pattie’s signature prompts, questions, and exercises to help you delve into your relationship with time and art and help you uncover how best you can make your creative process a hard commitment.

  • You will learn how to plan and design an all-in-one planner, journal, log, and tidbit collection that will serve your individual artistic and whole life goals.

  • Your first all-in-one will be a draft for you to use in October, November, and December and from there you will create quarterly all-in-ones for 2023 and the rest of your life.

  • In August you will attend a three-hour workshop that walks you through the process of creating this all-in-one and meet your co-students who are on the journey with you. You have the option of an in-person workshop in Seattle or Chimacum, Washington, or a Zoom workshop. The Seattle date is Monday, August 15, 5-8pm. Zoom and Chimacum dates are TBD.

  • We'll look at what's holding you back: Time apathy, new idea avoidance, compulsive desire to prove your worth, clinging to unneeded items, effort leading to exhaustion, over-volunteering your time, undervaluing your efforts, isolating yourself, misdirected guilt or shame, not following up, and stability ennui.

  • You will focus on living in the present, knowing that it is impossible to ignore the absurdity of living solely for the future.

TESTIMONIALS

“Pattie’s genius is that she opens a corridor of doors for students (and always seems to have the key to a few more) but allows the choice and risk to be yours...autonomy that leads to actual integration and capability...the natural gift of a master.​ ”

“Pattie’s classes have been a revelation to me! Before, I had no system for developing my video and writing in a way that felt satisfying. Her class has unleashed my desire to express myself in as many artistic ways as possible! Pattie is supportive, creative, focused, brilliant, and wise! We were also encouraged to practice new art, which developed my creativity 100 fold! ”

“I force and coerce myself back into the studio or sit there with my yellow pads of paper, waiting for creativity to pounce. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. Pattie knows all this and offers a way out via incoming suggestions. She is brilliant, calm, and centered. ”
