The Studio Yearbook

The Studio Yearbook
Click here for details.

Imagine having a journal that supports your creative process and practice a journal that not only holds the space for your inspirations and celebrations but that also becomes a beautiful keepsake of your journey as an artist.

The Studio Yearbook brings together creative practices that have been in use at Jamie Ridler Studios for years!

Imagine one place to celebrate the seasons and make a dreamboard under the full moon, one place to gather your gratitude and acknowledge yourself with gold stars, one place to be inspired, to learn, to experiment, to grow – a special place to bring your creativity to life!

During the week before the season begins, you will receive four instructional videos to guide you into the seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily creative practices that are central to your Studio Yearbook. It’s a wonderful way to start an adventure!

“I can’t believe one book fits that much joy in it.” Sundeep Grewal.

Creative Practice in the Studio

Awakening your creative capacity is something you do in the everyday. It’s not one bold action, completed and left behind. It’s the constant powerful unfurling of your spirit into the world. It’s the strength and flexibility that comes from being grounded in creative practice, having your heart and mind tuned in to the inner compass of your creative heart so that you are ready to fully embrace the adventure of living a creative life.

No matter where you live, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned creative, Journal Club and Mindful Mondays will establish practices that nourish your artistic soul and connect you to your unique insight. I’ve been coaching creative hearts just like you for over a decade – and these classes are the only opportunity to work live with me this season. I hope you’ll join me!

Connect to your heart each Monday and create a meaningful weekly plan.
We begin January 27.
