Everyone Is Creative

June 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$40 – $55


June 18: What is creativity?  Who is creative?  We are all creative, by choice and by necessity, as we respond to our daily lives solving problems, making beauty, and shaping meanings. It is also my belief that we have a responsibility to discover, cultivate, and give our gifts.  In this workshop, we will explore the idea of creativity and read what others say about it — with the goal of discovering ways to live more creatively.  Rollo May, in “The Courage to Create,” defined creativity as “the process of bringing something new into being.”  How does creativity help us survive our lives?  Novelist Gail Godwin said, “If I hadn’t been a writer I would have been a dangerous person.”  This session with conclude with a fun hands-on project to engage our imaginations.  Please bring a few old magazines.  Other materials will be provided.
