About 52 Ways to Be Creative

Each week of 2019, I'll take a course, do a workshop, or take part in peer-to-peer learning related to art and all things creative — all in the spirit of exploration, community, and self-improvement.

I will refresh a few forgotten skills and stretch into new areas, and share my experiences with you on my blog.

I’m seeking out challenges across a wide range of creative disciplines. I want to discover and celebrate what makes each unique and special. 

You are welcome to join in. Message me or use the hashtag #52WaysToBeCreative if you do.
