100 Days of Creative Courage

100 Days of Creative Courage is a creative online course that will celebrate the final 100 days of 2015!

Over the past 5 years, I've collected over 100+ fascinating guest expert interviews with incredible artists, writers, bloggers, coaches, designers, crafters, and photographers from around the world.

I've also put together 100+ fun activity, adventure, and journaling prompts to energize your creative spirit and get your ideas flowing.

100 Days of Creative Courage will combine all of this and more for a unique, unforgettable 100 day celebration of our online creative community.


During our 100 Days of Creative Courage journey, I'll send you a daily guest interview (or two) along with a sparkling creative prompt, adventure dare, or journal exercise to boost your motivation and lift you up.

You'll find out how our 100+ amazing Creative Courage guests:
  • built successful online businesses and opened retail shops
  • created multimedia online courses, live workshops, and retreats
  • published best-selling books
  • made beautiful artwork, photography, and crafts
  • started their own galleries and design labels
  • were featured for incredible media opportunities
  • learned to find their voice and stand out from the crowd
  • have overcome fear, resistance, and procrastination
  • and are now thriving as artists and creative leaders!
"The feedback and inspiration from the group is absolutely amazing. I hope to meet some of these talented women in person someday, because it has given me such a sense of community that I have been missing. The artist interviews provide valuable information from women that have pursued their dream and are now affecting others in such a positive manner."  Rendell, Canada 

In 100 Days of Creative Courage, I share my personal experiences as an artist, online course
creator, published illustrator, workshop leader, mom of two, and American expat living in Germany.

Creative Courage is the online course that started a whole new career for me.

100 Days of Creative Courage can help you expand your creative life too!

"Creative Courage is billed as finding, following, and realizing your creative dreams but it's really an adventure for your whole being. Guest interviews and travelogues illuminate and enlighten while exercises for your mind, body and heart gently challenge individuals to move forward into action which applies to anyone at any stage of life, says this mom of four." Vanessa, USA 

100 Days of Creative Courage will offer encouragement and practical advice as you:
  • establish your creative voice and distinctive style
  • join an international community of like-minded supporters
  • collaborate with others to expand your creative projects
  • increase your self-confidence and push through fears
  • develop effective time management strategies
  • avoid burnout and procrastination
  • create more space and time for your work 
  • and much more! 
"Through fun activities and exercises Stephanie helps you to get rid of old feelings of insecurity and encourages you to find out how to combine following your creative dreams with all other things going on in a busy life." Koosje - Netherlands


I understand very well about the challenges that come along with creative work.

I know it can be difficult to find time for your art, take care of family and other responsibilities, earn enough money, and continue to stay motivated and full of energy.

100 Days of Creative Courage will offer the support you need as you create a life that you love.

"Creative Courage could not have come at a better time in my creative career.  I'm only halfway through the course and I already feel like I've turned a corner in my courage to believe that the creative life I dream of can become reality.  
Digging into Stephanie's collection of inspiring quotes on creativity and her in-depth artist interviews would, on it's own, already make this course worth the investment. But on top of her careful research, Stephanie shares her own wealth of experience and provides practical exercises that are inspired by a deep insight into the emotional struggles many artists face.  
With her approachable style of teaching, Stephanie has created an e-course that is like an intensely personal coaching experience and a celebration of community among creative people who support and cheer each other on.  I can't wait to see where my newly-strengthened creative courage takes me from here!"  
Sadee, USA


"It has been such a wonderful course. I honestly cannot believe the changes I feel inside myself as a direct result of your words, exercises and interviews! I have made many wonderful connections and developed friendships with other creative soul sisters, which I am so grateful for! 

It has been the best money I have ever spent. I thank you, Stephanie, from the bottom of my courageous heart!" Kristen, USA

Any questions? For more detailed information about the course, please read our Creative Courage FAQ below.


Creative Courage FAQ

Do I have to be an artist or creative professional to participate?

No, absolutely not. In fact, I happily welcome participants of all ages, professions, and stages of life.

I believe we are all creative! However, we do need help in clarifying our ideas and encouragement to move forward in our creative work.
How does the Creative Courage e-course work?

The e-course runs on our password protected private online course website. The course features 100 daily posts with creative activity and journal prompts, plus 100+ daily guest artist interviews.

We also have private Facebook and Pinterest Creative Courage groups to give you more opportunities to connect and share during and after the course.
All course materials remain online throughout 2015 to give you time to review and reflect.


Do I need to be in the class at a certain time? What if I'm going on of town?

The beauty of taking e-courses is that you decide when to participate in the class! You can integrate the class into your personal schedule and take the class in the comfort of your own home.

All materials are available to you 24/7 and you can complete exercises at your own pace.

If you are going on vacation, no worries! You can take the course with you for a pocket of daily inspiration or catch up when you get home.

But I live in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa, Asia, South America...

Wonderful! We will be happy to meet you regardless of where you live! 

Creative Courage has welcomed participants from over 53 countries from around the world! 

One of the most marvelous things about the Internet is that we can all connect globally with one another in an instant. I am amazed at the ease of communication with other like-minded people from all corners of the globe - and e-courses like this one are a perfect meeting point.


How are you qualified to lead this e-course?

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts and a Master's degree in Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, USA. I also completed a Master's degree in Art in Context from the University of the Arts in Berlin, Germany.

For the past 20 years, I have been working as a professional online course and workshop leader, illustrator, and artist. I know that it takes energy and courage to realize your creative dreams, but I also know that it is possible.

I'm an American who has been living in Germany for almost two decades. Life as an expat has forced me to train my "creative courage" muscles quite often through the years. 

You'll get all my very best, super duper tips and resources for fulfilling your own creative, courageous dreams and passions!

What will I need for the class?

All you need is access to a computer and an Internet connection.

But the main thing we need is you!


When does 100 Days of Creative Courage start?

100 Days of Creative Courage will run September 23 - December 31, 2015 - the last 100 days of this year.

Will you be offering this class again at a later date?

** 100 Days of Creative Courage is my final online course! **

Teaching online classes for the past several years has been an extremely rewarding experience, and it has been wonderful to meet so many of you online and in person.

With 100 Days of Creative Courage, I want to celebrate our global creative community in an inspiring 100 day adventure - and I sincerely hope that you will join me!

Thank you to all of our lovely 30 Days of Collage participants from around the world!

Here's what our recent participants had to say about the course:

"I found your online course to be amazing with the step by step tutorials and prompts as well as the Artist Interviews. So much information and work was done by you and delivered in such an elegant and gentle way. At no time did I feel, as a newbie collager, in any way intimidated. I'm also very pleased that I've now found another way to use all the stash and papers I love to collect. This has given me a completely new way of looking at my surroundings and I've learned to appreciate the grunge as well as the beautiful, where I live."  - Angela, Saudi Arabia

"Thank you very very much Stephanie and the wonderful group - I think I gained access to my creativity again :) I lost the ability to work in a flow - but now it seems that I regained it." - Gislinde, Germany

"Fabulous course that I'm still wading my way through. So much inspiration and wonderment." - Jenny, Australia

"I'm taking 30 Days of Collage with Stephanie Levy. This is my third time taking this class! I really like the collage prompts and the push to do them within 30 days." - Rachel, USA

"I enjoyed the interviews very much this time and found some of the artists very inspiring. I have developed some new ideas about collages and want to work more with old photographs. And I'm very happy that we have access to the material for the rest of the year... and I'm happy that we have this group and I'm very much looking forward to see more of what the other participants are going to share during the next weeks and months and also to share some of my collages." - Andrea, Germany

"I'm so full of ideas... you open a door Stephanie and I'm discovering a world!!" - Cinzia, Italy

"I got so many new ideas from this course and the interviews with the artists are so so content rich with so many links to further artists - I will be coming back to this course all year!" - Britta, Australia

"As a busy mum of two small children I have found it hard to find the time or motivation for creativity. Thanks to Stephanie I now have the motivation! Now to find the time! Although one of my favorite collages was completed in about 5 minutes at the kitchen counter while making dinner. I have loved this course for helping me find my creative side again." - Christine, UK

"There is only one thing wrong with this course - 30 Days passes too fast. I have enjoyed the daily instructions and interviews and will miss them. I have got inspiration for many days to come." - Kerstin, Sweden

"I can't decide what I liked best about this course because it was all amazing! The daily tutorials, the guest artist interviews, the bonus materials, and the caring, supportive environment you've fostered here have been a gift. 30 Days of Collage has gone by quickly, but I feel my own creative journey's just begun! Thank you Stephanie!" - Claire, USA

"Ever since I saw your collage work in the Masters of Collage book, I was hooked. Just love, love, love your work. So beautiful. Thank you for your interview and for the class. A fabulous class just packed (and I mean packed) with tons of valuable information. A truly rewarding 30 days ... and beyond!" - Karen, USA

"This has been such a fabulous course. I haven't begun to digest it all and plan to post as I complete more of the lessons. You are an amazing teacher, so, so happy you offer these amazing courses and introduce us to so many wonderful collage artists. I can't thank you enough!" - Lisa, USA

" 'And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.'  (-Anais Nin) Every single course I participate in with Stephanie makes me discover and explore creative petals of mine that I didn't know of before. In my early stages of creating collages, 20 years ago, as a teenager, I mostly put together snippets of found pages and added a bit of text against a non-white background. For me, that already felt pretty adventurous. Now I feel like being on a journey where my creations become more and more mixed media pieces. In my opinion, taking part in Stephanie's live courses in Berlin, after having taken her online collage courses was beyond inspiring! The effect of creating together with like-minded women from all over the world, sharing the same studio space and talking it all over while having delicious meals was beyond my imagination. A colorful field of potential is ready to be walked and savored during the next few weeks, months, and coming years. Looking forward to my next harvest of blossoms and to yours as well!" Elke, France

"Stephanie Levy has put together a fabulous course with an amazing volume of content. 30 daily tutorials, 30 interviews with collage artists, a private Facebook group for sharing, support, and inspiration, and online presence via Facebook and Instagram. The interviews with collage artists have introduced me to so many different artists and styles of collage. Each artist also linked to some of their favourite artists and websites, and I haven't caught up with all of them yet... I feel like I am overflowing with ideas, inspiration, and energy. I'm not sure what my style is yet, but I can kind of see it will develop if I just keep going and that's exactly what I plan to do. I still have access to the course materials for the rest of the year. I have a stash of collage fodder that is ever increasing and I'm enjoy the process of collecting, cutting, arranging, and glueing more than ever!" - Emily, Australia 


Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork and kind words. 30 Days of Collage is always a joy to lead, and I love our online international creative community!

All my best + greetings from Berlin,
