For Artistic Endeavors

Even the most disciplined and enthusiastic artist--writer, painter, dancer, musician, etc.--can lull, can get stuck. The artistic process, in all its variety and mercurial glory, is sometimes just very difficult to predict and navigate. Individually or in a small group, DSDS seminars can re-activate, re-energize, and re-focus you. And the process, readings, conversations, and exercises can be modified to address specific, particular artistic skills or projects.
