Play is important. It’s especially important for adults as it’s hard to find the time to create, be silly and listen to our intuition in our daily lives.
This workshop will add some “whimsy” to your week by allowing room for free play and exploration with various creative tools (paint, crayons, collage, googly eyes, hula hoops, bubbles, sand and more).
We will begin with a mindfulness exercise to help us tune in to our creative selves and will end the workshop with creative goal-setting.
The workshop will be run by Nicki Gallo; a Therapeutic Clown at SickKids Hospital, Artist-Educator and Therapeutic Play Practitioner. She has an improv comedy background training at the Second City Conservatory and Bad Dog Theatre. One of the most playful things she has ever done is create a play on a moving school bus about a fictional camp called Camp Schecky which played at the Toronto Fringe Festival.
Nicki played every day for the month of May. Here is a piece on what happened: http://www.shedoesthecity.com/played-every-day-month-happened
