Art, Craft & Design Classes

A creative outlet can be a meditative practice which might be more important for you in todays world as a form of escapism or healing.  Use art to develop your visual language to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions.  Explore and experiment with a variety of different skills and techniques.  Allow your creative spirit to enjoy the creative process of making.  Learn to develop your intuition and become a more critical thinker.
