Featured Upcoming Event:
Waypoints: A Creative Process Retreat in the Texas Hill Country. Saturday, December 8th, 2018
Join Charlotte Gullick, MFA, and Melinda Rothouse, PhD, for an intimate creative process retreat. Getting lost and finding your way anew are vital moments in the journey to create. Together we will explore self-doubt, disorientation, and reconnection in relation to our artistic work.
This retreat is open to anyone interested in exploring, re-igniting, or deepening their creativity; no specific experience, training, or expertise needed. All creative mediums are welcome.
Join us for our Monthly Creativity Meetup group to participate in our online community, connect with other creative people, and learn more about our upcoming events. It’s a time to connect with other creative folks; discuss the creative process; share insights, inspirations, and challenges; and receive support and accountability for your creative projects.
