Pathways to Success | Lyne Marshall

Finding creative direction is just the beginning of the journey. There is also much to learn about negotiating the tricky pathways to the right doors for a successful artistic career. The process takes courage, belief in self and some risk taking – all of which can be helped by having some useful tools on your ‘work bench’.
In this weekend workshop, Lyne Marshall builds upon the earlier Creative Direction workshop to give you an assortment of tools to help you navigate the psychological passage from creation to career, without losing sight of what inspires you.

What will I learn?

This workshop is about looking where you are going and having a successful creative career, including:

  • looking deeper into who we are and how we think and act

• facing and defusing blocks to our hopes and dreams.
• reinventing the way we look at and deal with life and art
• putting colour back into our life
• breaking barriers to creative success
• getting past the gatekeepers
• influencing, positively, those people who affect your life and career.

Day one – Reframing
On day one you will be looking at moving forward, by breaking down the barriers, passing the gatekeepers and opening closed doors. The afternoon will be spent looking at the elements of art and colour, with an exercise that will help you to better understand how you use colour in your art and life.

Day two – Digging Deeper
In the morning of day two, you will be focused on understanding creativity, techniques for seeing through different perspectives and developing personal power. The afternoon session will focus on the natural elements of art in images, and an outdoor exercise with your camera.

The workshop is designed to be light hearted, fun, and a safe place to explore and grow. It’s designed for you to take on board what is most valuable to you personally and to gather insights that may move you along in your creative career. You are encouraged to ask questions throughout the day to clarify your understanding, or to start a discussion during breaks.

Lyne has written four books on creativity (the most recent in 2017), all of which will be available for purchase at the workshop. You can find information about each of these books at

Who is this workshop suitable for?

This is an advanced course for those who have completed the earlier Creative Direction Workshop.
