TAHOE/TRUCKEE - This creative group will be an ongoing 12-week session (with a Christmas break) and will follow the book "Walking in this World, The Practical Art of Creativity" by Julia Cameron. Each session will begin with group discussion based on the reading, followed by 1 hour 15 minutes of creative application at the Arts in Wellness loft studio (an artist's date!). The chapters in "Walking in this World" invite self discovery; where you have been, and where you are now - our point of origin. The last chapters relate to where you are going, finding authenticity and rebirth, happen appropriately the four weeks in January, giving a colorful and committed fresh start to 2013.
If you have read "The Artist's Way," also by Julia Cameron, this is an opportunity to step into the world of original creative expression and celebrate yourself as an artist and creator by birthright. You will do expressive painting projects relating to the theme of each chapter along with other creative projects. These exercises will help validate the ongoing experience of "Walking in this World" beyond the 12 weeks.-

• Meet at the loft studio of Arts in Wellness every Wednesday afternoon, 2-4:30 p.m., starting Oct. 17.
