Explore your desire to write and express your ideas artistically, and discover more ways to help your creativity flourish

Have you ever thought to yourself, “If I had the time, I would spend a couple of hours a week expressing my thoughts and feelings creatively?"

Our lives as we were living them have been interrupted, so this may be the ideal time for you to focus on exploring your creativity. Join instructor Barb Buckley and reignite your creativity in a relaxed, non-pressure environment.

A variety of images, quotes, and activities will be provided to you each week and you will be invited to express your thoughts and feelings in writing and/or art. A few introspective-type activities will also be introduced along with some time for creative visualization.

You will also have an opportunity to explore several principles of creativity developed by Leonardo da Vinci through discussion and activities.

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, reckoned and redeemed.” -Audrey Hepburn
