It only takes 20 minutes a day to create a new habit, but it can be incredibly challenging to embark on a creative practice.

We offer support, inspiration, tips, and a consistent meeting schedule in a unique, zero-pressure environment. This is not a group critique. You never have to show your work. This is just for you. It's a way to make sure that you stick with the creative projects that you want to realize and live your life with more purpose.​

What Is Practice?

A chance to dive into your creative practice. Carissa, Amanda and special guests lead the group in a weekly exercise or meditation. Then we work alone, together. At the end, we reconvene and see how it went.

03/

What Are the Zoom Sessions Like?

Our Zoom workshops are a non-intimidating group format. Speak if you want, don't if you don't. We are about reducing pressure, because pressure hinders creativity. We create a cozy space for creative work and personal growth. 

02/

Who Is Practice For?

It's for writers, cooks, visual artists, curators, researchers... anyone who needs more time for creativity. If you have a passion or project to work on, PRACTICE can help you build the creative habit to see it through.

04/

Why Is This Better Than Working Alone?

It's hard to stay accountable to yourself. Practice makes sure your creative life gets a spot on the schedule, plus our exercises, guests, salons, and community help inspire you to keep going.
