Play Workshop For Adults. Finding Your Creative Flow

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 and will allow room for free play and exploration with various creative tools (paint, crayons, collage, googly eyes, hula hoops, bubbles, sand and more). The workshop will begin with reflection and mindfulness and end with creative goal-setting.
