Wednesdays, September 4–November 20, 2019 | 6:00–8:00 p.m.
The Artist's Way Workshop is divided into twelve weeks of meetings allowing the participants to take one chapter at a time. The workshop will be led by Sunny Goode and Gincy Plummer.
The Artist’s Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today-or perhaps even more so-than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. In a new introduction to the book, author Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of The Artist’s Way and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes The Artist’s Way for a new century

Sunny is a full time Richmond, Virginia, contemporary artist who graduated from Hollins University with a B.A in Art History in 1990. In her own words, “Color is how I communicate. Even in my earliest memories, color was the primary voice. It is no wonder I became an artist and love to paint. I believe that a painting should make you feel something. I often look back at a series I’ve done and realize that I can “see” very clearly what was going on in my life at that time, in the lines and shapes, but primarily with the colors I used. I tend to paint in a series, working through an emotion or savoring a feeling I get by painting a similar subject with different color variations. Painting brings me joy and also helps me through more difficult times in my life. I often think of it as my mental yoga. I hope my paintings reflect an emotion and create a feeling that gets deeper each time you look at them.”
Her work has been featured in publications such as Southern Living, Traditional Home, Coastal Living, and The Washington Post. Sunny lives in Richmond, Virginia with her three children, Presley, Whit, and Beck. She is currently represented by art dealers in Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections all over the country.
