I've been a bit remiss (and in truth, a little shy) I feel in not speaking more on my new 'baby' - the Creativity Circle that I have lovingly put together for women everywhere; women just like you... Here is the direct link: http://janehinchliffeartist.ning.com/
Once you have clicked the link, you will enter the ning network and my Art Circle. To join, simply click 'Sign Up' at the top right hand corner of your screen. From there, fill in your email address and a password. Shortly after, you will receive an email and you'll be able to access the Circle (and free classes) whenever you wish...
Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.
- Bill Moyers
As you'll see in the above screen shot, I am also offering three free classes in this new space (hosted by ning) and I'd love to have you join and connect with me and other Members who have gathered so far.
It doesn't come naturally for me to be pushy or 'blow my own trumpet' but I also know that this is something I truly believe in; is so important to me and therefore if I don't tell you all about it, my vision has no chance of coming to fruition (obvious I know but for an introvert, can be a problem).
Vision for my Creativity Circle
Well first of all, I want it to be a place of nurturing for women everywhere - a haven for when you feel stuck and need to be lifted and inspired. Likewise, when you're feeling a buzz of creativity hyper, that you will feel called to share your thoughts, pictures and creations with us.
I also am excited about women coming together and sharing their tips, little techniques they've picked up, the latest products, cool books, apps and suggestions or ideas on a particular topic.
As a Creativity Circle, not only will it focus on art but other forms of creativity too like poetry, art journaling, photography, crochet, crafting, writing, sewing etc.
I'm definitely looking forward to sharing lots of content via video but equally want to share thoughts in the future on practical ideas/solutions/inspiration on other important parts of my life such as family, marriage, health, service to others and faith etc. within (and sometimes not) the context of 'creativity'.
I've created this space to be a haven for learning, inspiration, sharing techniques, tips, self-expression, encouragement, love and play!
So, once you are a Member (it's free), you can connect and contribute (as much or as little as you like) with other Members, join in the forums, invite your friends along, take part in discussions (or start your own), join my free art courses and even purchase classes.
Just the word 'Circle' to me feels expansive, inviting, open and joyful. When women gather together, powerful change takes place.
So as you've probably gathered, I'm just so thrilled (and a tiny bit nervous but mainly excited) to be sharing this space with you and look forward to connecting with you all and us growing this creativity community together...
