The Artist’s Way for Parents
Raising Creative Children
Authors: Julia Cameron, Emma Lively
‘For decades, people have been asking me to write this book … The Artist’s Way for Parents focuses on creative cultivation, where we consciously – and playfully – put our children on a healthy creative path toward the future.’ – Julia Cameron
Since the international success of The Artist’s Way, readers have been asking Julia for ways they can assist their children with their own creativity and self- expression. As a grandmother, Julia understands the importance of children being encouraged to explore their imagination. In The Artists Way for Parents she examines key topics that can help parents join the dots for their children – including safety, curiosity, connection, limits, self-expression, inventiveness, focus, discovery, humility, and independence.
About the Author
Julia Cameron was born and raised in Chicago, attended Georgetown University, then Fordham, started her journalism career at the Washington Post, then moved on to Rolling Stone. She met Martin Scorsese while interviewing him for Rolling Stone. They married in 1975 and divorced in 1977. In 1978 writing and drinking no longer worked for her, so Cameron stopped the drugs and alcohol, and began teaching creative unblocking.
The publication of The Artist’s Way, which has sold millions worldwide, propelled her to fame. Cameron has taught filmmaking, creative unblocking, and writing at The Smithsonian, Esalen, the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, and the New York Open Center.
