Creativity Connection Series (Ages 18+) – Connect to your creative side while connecting with others. We are born creatives. Sadly, we forget this as we focus on perfection. Connecting to your creativity is not about perfection but embracing imperfection. Playful creativity is also a great way to release stress and anxiety. This monthly series will explore different ways to connect to our creative selves. Classes start Wednesday, April 3rd. 

Creative Awakening – Unleash your inner creative with playful exercises that get you to relax, have fun, and open up to creative thinking. We’ll explore collaborative games that help us think spontaneously while using art, words, and movement in inventive ways. Come prepared to move and interact with each other during this creative playtime. (First Wednesdays. 7:00 pm)

Creative Drawing – Many of us think we can’t draw because we’re not DaVinci. There is more to creative drawing than lifelike images. A stick figure is still a creative work of art. Let go of your expectations, and the perceived expectations of others, and learn ways to bring out your inner child artist again. (Second Wednesdays. 7:00 – 8:00 pm)

Creative Composition – Let’s have fun being creative with words. We will do playful exercises to bring out your inner wordsmith. You will explore ways to express yourself with words from the written to the spoken, prose to poetry, the serious and the silly. (Third Wednesdays. 7:00 – 8:00 pm)

Creative Construction – Let’s make a life-sized board game together! We’ll plan out a room-sized version of Candyland with characters, color tile paths, cards, and more. We will set it up and then play. (Fourth Wednesdays. 7:00 – 8:00 pm)
