CREATIVE WORKSHOPS 

My workshops and programs are highly customized and responsive. To design a program that's a great fit, the first step is to learn about your organization and the people you serve, and suggest some options for you to consider. Once a program is up and running, I draw on my own abilities to flex and adapt in the moment, responding to the needs and interests of the group.

Depending on your needs and interests, we can focus on one artistic discipline --writing, drawing, or theater improvisation. Or we can design a program that includes multiple disciplines, to tap into the power of creative cross-training. In the same way that cross-training at the gym surprises our muscles into getting stronger, toggling between art modalities gives our creative muscles an extra potent workout.

A single workshop is fun. A series is powerful. 

  • A single workshop session will reconnect folks to the creative spark that lives in all of us, and light up your event or group.

  • A series of sessions can create a dramatic shift in the way participants approach challenges and creative problem-solving, and build strong connections and community among participants. For a team that works together, a workshop series can help transform the culture of your team to one of more creative collaboration and strategic risk-taking. Programs often consist of 4, 6, or 8 sessions, or are ongoing. 

Pricing

What to expect during a workshop: 

  • Fun, low-pressure guided exercises that feel like games

  • Drawing, writing and/or improv exercises. I'll work with you to design a program that focuses on one discipline, or is a blend of multiple disciplines

  • An easygoing, supportive, nonjudgmental environment that invites you to play and embrace mistakes

Key takeaways:

  • Tackling creative the problems found in drawing, writing, and improv exercises trains you to be a better creative problem-solver at home and at work 

  • Analog tools (Pencils! Paper! Hands!) can generate ideas that digital tools often don't

  • Emphasizing process over product can make drawing and collage more fun, and offer new perspectives 

  • If you desire, the program can also build toward a tangible takeaway like a bound collection of comics, writings, an improv showcase, a pop-up gallery show...or something else we can brainstorm together.

Duration:

  • Sessions typically last 75 - 90 minutes each

  • Schedule a single session or a series of 4, 6, 8 or more

  • Half-day, full day or multi-day options also available

For people who:

  • Love to draw, write or do improv and feel skilled at it

  • Are afraid to draw, write or try improv and think they're "bad" at it

  • Haven't touched a marker or crayon since age 10

  • Know they're creative

  • Are convinced they don't have a creative bone in their body

  • Have no interest in becoming an artiste but are interested in becoming a better creative problem-solver

Location: 

  • In person or online
