WELCOME to a new year of committing to being more creative:

• capture your ideas in writing;

• find inspiration and motivation from a group of creatives;

• have fun learning to tell your story;

• use “52” for accountability and encouragement; and (optionally)

• commit to writing a project proposal!

Inspired by Sue Mitchell’s commitment to 52 weeks of art making and her resulting exhibition called “52”, this group was formed in 2015 for creative people to find inspiration and motivation from one another while participating in a 52-week self-directed creative journey to help you develop the habit of capturing your inspired ideas and being more artful on a regular basis.

So, if you write poetry, books, or screenplays; make films, clothes, jewelry, or jelly; paint or draw; create prints or photographs; are a foodie, ceramist, or illustrator; or play guitar, sing, or dance, you need to take this journey.

The cost to join is $252.52. Those who have been members of previous iterations of The 52 Project know how valuable the experience of being part of the Project is, and how new members add knowledge and energy to the mix. That is why—for those who have participated in The 52 Project in the past—your 2022 sign up allows you to include one friend who has never been a Project member at no additional cost! You can either gift this to a friend or family member OR split the cost ($126.26 each)! Only previous Project members are eligible for this offer and their invitee must be brand new to the program.

Included in the price of Project membership is a RAM Individual membership; nine monthly meetings to help you get started, figure out your story, and learn the business of art; plus sharing sessions. You will also receive invitations to curatorial tours, artist demos, and more. In May, your RAM membership will authomatically also include admission to The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture.

For those who can’t make the workshops, don’t feel left out; become a virtual The 52 Project 2022 participant for $52 and get exclusive digital access to the Facebook group page.

Sign up today.
