What people have to say about this process:

“Before (this) class, I was completely separate from my creativity. The years of bitterness, loss and disappointment had taken their toll. Then gradually a miracle started to happen. I went back to school and got a degree in theater, I am auditioning for the first time in years, I am writing on a steady basis – and most important of all, I finally feel comfortable calling myself an artist….”

“Why should we use our creative power….? Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold, and compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and accumulation of objects and money.” – Brenda Eland

“The purpose of art is not rarified, intellectual distillate – it is life, intensified, brilliant life.” – Alain Arias-Mission

Testimonials from Andrea’s course on The Artist’s Way:
“You have the reputation for being the kindest, most positive person around. When you perform there is a light that just iminates from you, it is a beautiful glow of goodness; something very rare and only found in unique and special individuals. You are such a positive influence on us and our children.” – Cindy Stormer
“I have loved you for all your light. Thanks for sharing your joy with us all.  Thanks for teaching me – for mentoring me – for showing us how to step back in time and enjoy “Old fashioned fun”! You’ve been a beautiful example of life. May you continue to spread your flowers across the sea for all of your days.” – Ashley Hartman 
“Thank you for sharing such an uplifting musical experience! It was a day filled with blessings, gratitude and inspiration! – Sandra Currie
