I attended Robin Reynolds' workshop, A Call To Create, this spring. Over eight weeks, I developed a regular creative practice, by creating an art journal and a notebook to organize my days and reflect upon them. But it was so much more than that! Each week, Robin inspired her students with prompts and teaching designed to help us use our creativity to process the stuff of everyday life and to express what's inside of us.
The classes even include videos from other well known artists and writers. Robin built a wonderful course. She presents clear examples of her lessons, as she’s accomplished in both writing and art. (And in a number of other areas in her life.) Robin’s warm personality brightens each lesson. I found her to be accessible and encouraging. Robin has inspired me to take on new risks in my creative life. I definitely recommend A Call to Create.
Robin crafted a wonderful class in A Call to Create. She provides lessons that cover writing and visual art in a new way. I’ve done both activities over the years, but have never thought to combine these skills. Robin gives her students the opportunity to practice art and writing in a thoughtful format. There are opportunities to read, write, learn, reflect, paint/draw, share, and delve deeper into each lesson.

I'm Robin Reynolds. I'm a systems engineer & a creative coach, but most importantly, I'm wildly, madly, passionately in love with my life. It wasn't always that way. I worked hard to get here and I learned a TON along the way. I want to share it with you.
For the first 34 years of my life, I let myself be swept along by the current. I didn't understand that I had the power to intentionally influence my experience and path forward. As a reaction to an intersection of multiple difficult events (yep, the infamous rock bottom is a real thing), I began to slowly piece my life back together in a way that was aligned with who I wanted to be.
