The Artist’s Way, named after the book by the same name, is a twelve-week program that helps each individual take inventory of their artistic habits and find ways to ensure you are carving time into your day to day for your creative practice. Each of the twelve weeks has its own chapter in the book, you will be asked to read the text and complete the exercises prior to class that respective week. This book tackles creative and emotional blocks, and challenges you to reconnect with your sense of curiosity and play.  Santiago Iacinti will facilitate the conversation. (Santi will not lecture, the group as a whole will participate. Santi will simply keep the group on track.) This is meant to be a safe and brave space. Each participant will make their own goals. You truly get out of it, what you put into it. 

Thursdays, March 2nd - May 18th, 5-7pm EST

Preparation Required:
PDF of the book will be provided. Please read the first chapter prior to the first class. You will also need a notebook to journal in.

Cancellation/refund policy

PlayPenn is always working to secure amazing artists to teach our classes and our teachers often go out of their way to fit teaching with us into their busy schedules. Our class sizes are limited to support individual attention, and as such, we are not able to offer refunds if you are unable to attend. So, before you register and pay, make sure you’ve cleared space on your calendar so that you can guarantee your opportunity to work with our master artists! In very extreme circumstances, we may need to cancel a class for reasons beyond our control and will offer full refunds.

A Note From Our Education Department:


Sharing your play with the world is an incredible rush—but it’s also unarguably terrifying. After an often isolating writing process, your work is exposed for everyone to see. We know just how vulnerable writers are in these moments, and we’re passionate about helping to navigate them.


Here at PlayPenn, we offer our students supportive opportunities to test out new work and hone their craft, providing them with a sense of camaraderie at all stages of their writing careers. Our PlayPenn classes encourage writers to bounce ideas off of one another, commiserate about industry challenges, and be inspired by the world-class writers and industry experts leading each course. We apply this same ethos to The Foundry, our intensive writers group for emerging Philadelphia playwrights; and to our public readings of our students’ works in progress throughout the year.


By taking a PlayPenn class, you become part of a welcoming community of experienced playwrights, avid playgoers, recent grads, and everyone in between. Please join us!
