Creative Connection 

Making time for creativity and connection can be a challenge. But with what does that leave us? What kind of life is one that is only task-driven? NOW is the time to take time for you! Connect to your own creativity and with other creatives! In this group, we focus on simple approaches to art-making: collage, abstract drawing, blind painting, sandtray and more. This approach allows people from all artistic backgrounds to create with confidence! We also weave in complimentary music, writing, movement and drama to enhance the visual art pieces. Engage your imagination to find inspiration, new perspectives, heart-felt meaning, and connection. 

Connection is why we're here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives. ~Brene Brown

 When creativity is made a priority, it sparks innovation. ~Erica Djossa

Brene Brown on Creativity:

Here's what I've learned about creativity from the world of wholehearted living and loving:

1. “I’m not very creative” doesn’t work. There’s no such thing as creative people and non-creative people. There are only people who use their creativity and people who don’t. Unused creativity isn't benign. It lives within us until it’s expressed, neglected to death, or suffocated by resentment and fear.

2. The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity.

3. If we want to make meaning, we need to make art. Cook, write, draw, doodle, paint, scrapbook, take pictures, collage, knit, rebuild an engine, sculpt, dance, decorate, act, sing – it doesn’t matter. As long as we’re creating, we’re cultivating meaning.
