Creativity for Non-Artists
During this one hour, live webinar you will come to understand the truth about creativity: that we are all born with some form of creative genius within us. You will learn about the research that backs up this fact, and why so many of us have been led to believe that we are not creative. You will also learn how to tap into your own creative genius without having to learn to draw, write or partake in any other skill you're not interested in. This is the type of creativity that will effect your whole life.
Creativity for Parents
After teaching art to kids for 20 years, Sara knows a thing or two about what kids can use from their parents in order to set them up for a life of creative endeavoring and risk taking. During this one hour, live webinar Sara will teach parents the very simple tools and techniques they need to inspire their kids to create, take risks, and express themselves through art projects in a way that will also teach them to take risks and innovate in whatever environment in which they find themselves. The good news here is that you don't have to know how to draw, paint or sculpt to be creative with your kids, because that is not what they need from you, and in fact, in some cases, your active participation might hinder them from fully expressing themselves.
