ARTplay night for adults Starts Oct 15th!

Why should children have all the fun playing making a mess? Adults need to play just as much if not more than children. Art making is a natural way to engage with our innate curiosity and sense of self expression. Allowing ourselves to play creatively is actually good for our health and well being! Getting out of our heads into relating with our hands and eyes with colors and textures we can allow ourselves to see the world in a fresh way and literally stimulates new brain pathways.

What I am proposing is that you treat “making” and “playing” as part of your self care routine the way you would go to a yoga class to stretch your body, ARTplay is exercising your creative potential. Playing making ‘art’ can be a natural part of your life, not a big expensive and scary endeavor.

Everyone can play if they let themselves.

So please join me in the beginning of an ARTplay night for adults.
