Connecting with Your Creativity, with Allison Pottern Hoch

Connecting with Your Creativity, with Allison Pottern Hoch

“Taking care of ourselves, we give ourselves the energy and clarity to take care of our children.”  — Julia Cameron

How do creatives find the time and mental energy to continue artistic pursuits when parenting demands so much of both?

How do we hold space in our lives for the competing identities of “artist” or "writer" and “parent"? 

 One way is to use tools from each identity to inform the

other. Using excerpts from other parenting-creatives as a springboard, we will talk (and creatively express!) our way through the challenges we face as parents pursuing creative and artistic endeavors, while brainstorming fresh approaches to time management, staying inspired, re-aligning expectations, and being artistic role models for our kids.

You do not need to be an artist or writer to join this workshop.  Your children can be 3 months old or 30 years old.  Men and women are welcome.  


Sunday, April 28 from 3-4:30pm
