"We Must Develop a Self to Express"

Cameron, Julia (2009-08-29). The Artist's Way Every Day: A Year of Creative Living (p. 145). Penguin Group. Kindle Edition.

I am encouraging you to take one of my classes or workshops to develop your artist self. The experience of learning, sharing, trying something new....expands us! And besides,  according to Julia Cameron "Art may be the finest form of prayer. Making art is quite literally a path "to our Maker." In the act of creation, the creator reveals himself or itself to us and we, too, are revealed to ourselves as something of the divine spark from which we ourselves are made. It is this primal fact of connection, artist to artist, Great Creator to us as creator, that the truest sense of our own identity is born. We make art not merely to make our way in the world but also to make something of ourselves, and often the something that we make is a person with an inviolable sense of inner dignity. We have answered yes when our true name was 
called."
