Creative Courage FAQ


Creative Courage FAQ

There are lots of creative e-courses out there. What makes this course unique?

My Creative Courage e-course is an international, fun, holistic, hands-on online course, full of colorful activities, resources, quotes, and 12 fresh inspirational interviews with several of the most successful, amazing artists, writers, designers, coaches, and crafters who are thriving today.

Come celebrate your creative, courageous spirit in a joyful network of like-minded women, where we can share our ideas in a warm, supportive, private environment and give one another the generous gift of encouragement.


How does the "Creative Courage" e-course work?

The e-course runs for six weeks on a password protected private website. The course includes daily posts Monday through Friday with fun activities, colorful artwork, personal stories, and interviews.

There are also private flickr and Facebook Creative Courage groups to give you more opportunities to connect and share during and after the course.

Do I have to be an artist to participate?

No, absolutely not. In fact, I happily welcome participants of all ages, professions, and stages of life! I look forward to a vibrant mix of "creative courage" seekers, dreamers, and doers.

I believe we are all creative - we just sometimes need a little help in clarifying our ideas and some encouragement to help us move forward.


Do I need to be in the class at a certain time? What if I'm going on of town?

The beauty of taking e-courses is that you decide when to participate in the class! You can integrate the class into your personal schedule and take the class in the comfort of your home.

But I live in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa, Asia, South America...

Wonderful! We will be happy to meet you regardless of where you live! So far Creative Courage has welcomed participants from over 30 countries from around the world! One of the most marvelous things about the Internet is that we can all connect globally with another in an instant.

I am continually amazed at the ease of communication with other like-minded people from all corners of the globe - and e-courses like this one are a perfect meeting point.

What will I need for the class?

All you need is access to a computer and an Internet connection.

A journal or a sketchbook would be helpful, and perhaps a small box, jar, or other container (we will have fun making "wish jars/boxes" in one of the exercises).

I will be sending you colorful, illustrated PDFs as part of the course to download. If you would like to print these out, you will need access to a color printer.

But the main thing we need is you!

How much time will I need for the class each week?

This depends completely on you and how much time and energy you would like to devote to the class. I would allow for 15-20 minutes a day ideally. If you prefer to do the course on the weekend, you should be able to complete the reading and exercises in an hour or two.


How are you qualified to lead this e-course?

What a good question! For the past 16 years, I have been working as a professional artist, illustrator, and workshop leader. I know that it takes energy and courage to realize your creative dreams, but I also know that it is possible.

I'm an American who has been living in Germany for more than a decade. Life as an expat has forced me to train my "creative courage" muscles quite often through the years.

I had to learn to promote my work in a new language and thrive in a foreign culture. With much support and hard work, I was able to complete a Master's degree in Art at the University of the Arts in Berlin - in German.

To develop this course, I spent two years researching and interviewing career and courage experts, artists, writers, designers, coaches, and other creative spirits who are thriving in their fields.

I am giving you my personal pickings from the cream of the crop. You will find it all here in a compact, helpful form in my Creative Courage e-course.


Is class size limited?

Yes, I limit the class size to give you more individual attention. Spaces tend to fill up quickly, so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
