Tiziana Severse: Rediscovered the Love and Joy of Art

Two albums and one broken up band into my musical career, I felt frustrated, washed up, and certain that I would never amount to anything as a solo artist. The Artist Way course helped me get in touch with why I started making music in the first place; the joy and love of art. I’m about to start recording my first solo album and I know I wouldn’t be here without the work I was able to do in the class. It was amazing beyond...

Nate Meltzer: Learned how to Access his Artistic Muse

Pope McElvy: The Artist’s Way workshop changed my life.

The Artist’s Way workshop has literally changed my life. In my youth I was an artist with my paintings hanging in many homes and I was a musician who played my own compositions for audiences, small and large. While living in Germany in the late 60’s, I performed my songs on national German television and Ed Ames, of the Ames Brothers, (if you know who they are, you are probably old, too) performed one of my songs on national German radio. In short, I loved to perform and share my music. This continued well into the 70’s, but somewhere along the way, I lost my enthusiasm for performing and slowly my creative juices atrophied...
