Are you interested in making art, writing, playing music, performing, or working on a creative project you care about more often?
This coaching group will support you to develop a consistent creative practice you love. I’ll support you to explore what’s important to you about creating art, come up with your own 30-Day Project you’ll do for the month of May*, and show up every day to do it with clarity, focus, ease, and grace.
💪 Creativity Gym 💪
🖌What: An 8-week coaching group to strengthen your creative practice.
✋Who: This group is for creative hobbyists and creative professionals alike!
🗓When: Tuesdays 4:30-6:30 PM PST, April 23rd, 2019 - June 11th, 2019.**
💻Where: Online! You can join by computer or phone from anywhere.
💰Price: Sliding scale $40-$60 per session for 8 sessions.
Want to chat about whether program is right for you?
I’ll talk to you about what you’re up to, what challenges you face to making the creative work you want to be making, and what might be next for you moving forward – whether it’s my group, or something else!
*Want to do a 100 Day Project instead, start a daily project before the group, or continue it after the group? That’s all good too! This group will help you do a daily project consistently no matter when or how long you do it.
** Interested, but the day/time doesn’t work for you? Let’s chat! The time may change if there’s another time that works better for folks who are interested, since it will be a small group.
Why I’m leading this group
I’ve been doing daily art projects for over four years, and have made over 750 pieces of daily art. In 2018, I did a different daily art project every month, which I’m continuing in 2019 — and probably the rest of my life!
Maintaining a daily creative practice has transformed my relationship to my artwork, improved my mental health, made creating habits in other areas of my life easier, and inspired me to become a creativity coach!
Supporting artists and creators as a coach is my greatest joy, and I’m so excited to be offering this support in a community setting for the first time. I know it can be isolating and difficult to create on your own – but going to Creativity Gym is so much easier and more fun with buddies!
I can hardly wait to support you and see what you make!

Is this for me?
Whether you’re a creative professional, a hobbyist, doodler, dabbler, or have never completed a creative project of your own before, this program is for you if you’re looking for an empowering and uplifting approach to consistently making creative projects.
This group is open to ALL creative mediums! This group is for you if you’re interested in: painting, drawing, lettering, writing, poetry, music, comics, performance, dance, photography, film/video, animation, sculpture, costume design, zine making, clowning, quilting, cross stitch, jewelry making, weird installation art, or literally any other creative act that brings you joy.
If any of this sounds familiar, this group is for you:
😑“I want to work on creative projects more regularly, but don’t know where to start.”
😞"My job is so draining, and I just never have energy for creative projects."
😓”I spend so much time worrying about what it means to be an artist that I’m not actually making the art I want to make.”
🤔“I’m tired of not knowing what to focus on.”
😨"Other people are already doing what I want to do better than I ever could, so why bother?"
😬"I have so many ideas, but I never finish anything."
😅“I want to feel excited when I make something.”
This is NOT for you right now if:
You’re not in a place to invest time or energy in developing your creative practice.
Creativity isn’t that important to you right now.
You only want to make art every once in a while.
You’re not interested in having a transformational experience alongside other people.
Still interested in support on your creative projects or business, but Creativity Gym isn’t a fit?
I also offer individual coaching.
What You’ll Get
This group will NOT magically “manifest” a creative practice. But it will help you take consistent action toward your creativity.
I won’t be telling you what to make or what to focus on. I will support you to discover a project you’d really love to commit to for 31 days for the month of May, and helping you gain the success skills you need to do it consistently.
Through this program, you will have the chance to:
🙈Move past your old, habitual, self-limiting beliefs about making art, so you can fully access your innate creativity and capacity to create.
🙌Be part of an incredibly supportive community of creators who are all on the journey to explore their creativity.
📋Get clear on what support and systems you need in place, so you’re ready to make things on a regular basis.
😄Experience joy & delight every time you sit down (or stand up!) to make art rather than overwhelm or dread.
💡Eight live training and coaching sessions
In these sessions, I’ll support you to explore what’s important to you about creativity, design a project you love, and get support and coaching while you work on it.
💻 Join live by computer or phone
We’ll meet via Zoom, a simple, user-friendly video call platform – and if you’re offline, you can call in by phone.
👯 Daily 1-1 support buddy
Nothing beats having a real person to be by your side as you go for your goals. You’ll have 5 minute daily accountability check-ins with your buddy to support one another!
👏 Incredibly supportive community
You’ll be delighted by the support, friendship, and community you experience during our sessions, a dynamic Facebook Group, and even after the 8 weeks are over.
💬 Unlimited text support
In between sessions, we can text back and forth to talk about your insights, questions, celebrations, and challenges.
🗄Lifetime access to recordings & materials
Miss a meeting, or want to go back and remind yourself about that insight you had? Get lifetime access to all session slides and summaries, video & audio recordings, and assignments.
What people say about working with me:
“As a freelance artist juggling a lot of different jobs and tasks, I’ve been feeling lost and overwhelmed about my career for the last few years. Working with Molly has been such a turning point, helping me develop a deeper trust in myself, my choices, and my dreams.
Our sessions give me the confidence and clarity to see what is in front of me and meet it with courage. Molly’s sincere affection and obvious love for what she does makes me feel seen and heard on a deep level, and her guidance is helping me be more vulnerable, honest, brave, and alive in my work.”
– Haley Brown, Visual & Performing Artist
Dates & Time Commitment
🗓 Every Tuesday, April 23rd - June 11th, 2019
🕟 4:30-6:30 pm PST (7:30-9:30 pm EST)
>> Interested, but the time or dates don’t work for you? Contact me. If there’s enough interested, I’ll start a second group or change the time. <<
We’ll meet twice in April to kick things off, weekly in May, and twice in June to celebrate and wrap things up.
No worries if you can’t join us live for every call — you’ll get the replay and materials within 48 hours of each session, and you’ll still get unlimited use of the Facebook Group and text support.
Time commitment outside of calls: I’ll support you to come up with a daily project to do every day for the month of May. My recommendation is to create a project you can do in 15 minutes or less a day (but can spend more time on if you choose).
I offer this program on an affordable sliding scale in order to make it as accessible as possible. Choose a level that is a stretch but not a hardship:
$40/session for 8 sessions if you are living month-to-month ($320 total)
$50/session for 8 sessions if you are making ends meet ($400 total)
$60/session for 8 sessions if you are financially stable ($480 total)
“What’s it really worth?”
You’ll get 12 hours of real-time training and group coaching, plus unlimited support by text, email, and Facebook.
1-on-1, this would cost $1,200. With the group format, I can offer the course at a fraction of that cost, while still earning a livelihood that supports my business and art practice.
Questions about cost or payment? Contact me!
“How much should I pay?”
Pay what you can, no more AND no less. For your sake, I don’t want this to be a hardship for you — AND, I don’t want you to “underpay” in any way that might leave the door open for you to disengage or give up on the course.
For that reason, I suggest reading the sliding scale tiers above, and asking:
“What would be a true ‘stretch’ but not a hardship?”
“What price would rule out any thought in my mind of not engaging 100%?”
Want to talk first to see if this program is a good fit for you,
or ask any other questions?
No sales-y stuff, no pressure, just a chat to see what will serve you best and answer your questions. If we see this group is not a fit, I’ll do my best to connect you with resources, programs, and coaches who might be, given your present vision and goals.
Ready to jump in?
You'll be charged an initial deposit to save your spot – then when the group starts on April 23rd, you'll be charged the weekly rate you choose for 7 weeks. Choose a rate that’s a stretch, but not a hardship.
