Creative Courage offers you 6 weeks of fun, color, inspiration, tools, and resources to kick start your creative life!

Maybe there is a creative dream you've had since you were a child, and you would like to give it a try but don't know where to start.

Perhaps you are already working on your creative projects, but sometimes you feel lost,
frustrated, and overwhelmed.

Or maybe you have already realized many of your creative ideas, but there are still many new challenges ahead and you could use some practical advice.

Regardless of where you are today, Creative Courage can help you create an individual
road map to the places you would like to go in the future.

Topics include:
  • clarifying and believing in your creative goals
  • taking risks and developing your self-confidence
  • fresh ideas on how to earn more money with your art and creative skills
  • building an online presence to grow your career as an artist
  • making connections and finding press opportunities to spread the word about your work
  • creating artwork without inhibition and how to avoid getting stuck
  • avoiding burnout and promoting balance in your life
  • connecting and collaborating with others to improve your creative business
  • designing helpful strategies for time management 
  • and much more! 

I've added fresh material as well:
  • how using certain colors in your home and studio areas can activate your creativity
  • an expanded bibliography and resource list for your exploration

And as a special bonus... I will send you a joyfully illustrated, personally handwritten Creative Courage postcard from my new hometown city of Berlin, Germany - directly from me to you!

In this private online course, I share my personal experiences as an artist, published illustrator, working mom, and American expat living in Germany. I tell you how my family and I do our best to juggle it all and make our lives more creative, interesting, and rewarding.

You can also connect with like-minded women in our private Creative Courage Facebook and Flickr groups. This supportive, community spirit is one of the very best parts of Creative Courage!

I encourage you to register for our Creative Courage e-course, open your mind and heart, and start listening to your deepest, truest wishes for your life.

"It has been such a wonderful course. I have grown so much in this past seven weeks. I honestly cannot believe the changes I feel inside myself as a direct result of your words, exercises and interviews! I have made many wonderful connections and developed friendships with other creative soul sisters, which I am so grateful for! It has been the best money I have ever spent. I thank you, Stephanie, from the bottom of my courageous heart!Kristen, USA

"I whole-heartedly recommend this course to any artist, or creative soul, whether they are creating work or not. It is a truly motivating course and I have enjoyed every moment. Stephanie's course has been an extremely informative, fun and soul searching experience. It has given me the opportunity to be part of a wonderfully supportive community of like-minded people. I have met so many interesting artists from all over the globe, all of whom have happily extended the hand of friendship to support and encourage each other in their artistic endeavours. Thank you Stephanie for this opportunity, it has been life-changing!" Denise, UK
