to Live a Creative Life
designed to be creative
so why is it that we feel so
guilty for taking time to create? You have a to do list
as long as your arm and a million other things you should
be focusing on, but have you ever thought that if you stop
and take time to be creative, you will end up being better
at all the other things on that list? Fulfilling the creative
need inside yourself will lead to a happier, healthier you
a you your family will love! This class will help you realize
that creativity is an inherent need in each of us-a need
that needs to be met, not overlooked, and you will find
the courage to start down the path towards living a creative

to Live a Creative Life isn't a "once and done"
kind of class. This class is just the beginning of a new
journey in your life. You will learn tools to help you spark
your creativity, ways to keep the creative fire lit, but
most importantly, you will walk away feeling like it's not
only OK for you to create, it's necessary. You will be able
to carve out time for youand to realize that the laundry
can wait. What a freeing thought! After all, it'll be there
tomorrow! The mini album you create during this class will
serve as a place to keep your dreams safe, to stretch your
creative wings, to try something new and different and most
importantly, to never be judged. Courtney will walk you
through all the steps you need to create a beautiful, unique
album that you can easily add to once the class is over!
from Courtney: I've spent many years practicing
living a creative life. I've dabbled in it, dipped my
toe in and finally learned that in order to be truly
happy, I had to dive in head first. The most fun part
of my life, though is being the wife of an incredibly
creative children's pastor and mom to three-all of whom
appreciate when I take creative time for myself
a happy mommy makes everything better! I hope you'll
join me in living a creative life!

information about Self-Paced Projects at Big Picture Classes!
Self-Paced Projects are instant download classes that
allow you to participate at BPC anytime! These classes
are different from our interactive workshops. There are
no starting or ending dates -- you may enroll at any time.
This flexibility also means, that there will not be the
level of teacher and student interaction that we enjoy
in our workshops. You will receive handouts to print and
an audio file to listen to, but there are typically no
message boards or chats.
