Nurture your creative spark with this free creativity course from American Latina artist, Emily Lupita. Published every Friday + Monday at noon (EST), topics include the creative process, international travel, art + writing, and Autism + motherhood.

Here’s how it works:

Every Friday at noon (EST), Emily Lupita posts a creativity candle. This (metaphorical) candle is an action prompt with explanations and examples, including from Emily Lupita’s own creative process. Use your candle when you need the light of a moment immersed in creativity. These Friday posts are included in the free subscription.

On Mondays at noon (EST), Emily Lupita posts a motivational matchstick. This is a post of interconnected research, travel writing, stories, videos, and visuals designed to light up your creative spark. The Monday posts go deeper into the creative process and are also part of the free subscription. Use the matchstick to give you ideas and inspiration for your own creative spirit.

The free subscription includes a variety of extra added bonuses and artwork along the way as well, including a phone wallpaper on each week’s theme - like this one.
