Wording a Title

Naming the title of my class in September is difficult.  I had put down “Using Art to Find Your Authentic Self”.  It might not be the best.  What if some people don’t find their true self.  I thought of “Using Art as Meditation” but many people don’t meditate.  Then how about using this title “Using Art to Declutter Your Mind”?  I could go further but the point is this. I need to be true to myself when I teach.  

My purpose in teaching is to help people release themselves of old thoughts and find joy and purpose in their lives by just thinking creatively.  It’s thinking outside the box.  So when I title something I want to reach people that are ready to grow in their Spirit. So what words should I use  in my title for class?

  1. Hi Lori

    After reading what you want to convey, I found I kept repeating a certain pattern in the titles I came up with, so here’s my list of possible titles:
    “Discover Your Creative Spirit”
    “Art & the Quest for Your Creative Self”
    “Let Art Help You Find Your Creative Self”
    “Unlock Your Creative Spirit Through Art”

    I think other words could be substituted for ‘self’ or ‘spirit’, but those just kept hanging in there with me, along with the word creative.

    Good luck, I know you’ll hit on the right wording.

  2. Love your suggestions Kathleen! Let me think it through.

  3. I’ve been in the same position many times, so I know what you’re facing.
    I like all of Kathleen’s suggestions, especially Discover Your Creative Self.
    or Reclaim… since Creative Self is there already.
    Have you considered approaching it from the point of view of what title would spark your interest if presented by someone else?
    The Law of Attraction is always in operation so you will attract your kind to the workshop.
    I wish I could attend!
    You’ll be great.

    • Thanks for the suggestions Renee. Yes, now I am going to write a press release to various outlets. I’ll let you know what I decide as far as a title. Thanks too for your support!
