Heritage Wednesday

In 1993, author Julia Cameron (center) first came to Wisdom House because we were using her book, "The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity."

Pictured here are Alan Colavecchio (on Julia's right) and Mary Lou Tanner (on Julia's left), who brought the program to us and were the first facilitators of the program.

We sponsored the program for various groups for a period of eight years. During that time more than 400 local artists participated in the program. Julia has returned to Wisdom House to do other programs over these past twenty-three years.

It was this program which was the impetus for creating the Marie Louise Trichet Art Gallery at Wisdom House in 1994.
