“Art requires imagination. It requires creativity. Creativity requires experience and experience comes from your life and your life is expressed in your art.” – Bruce Lee

The creative arts; drama, visual art, dance, storytelling and music involve creative expression as a means for healing the mind, body and spirit. It is a rare opportunity to find an art space for people to come together to imagine, express, create and explore oneself through art and introspect. The participant will be helped to develop a relationship with her/himself through the artistic medium. The focus of these sessions is on the process of creating rather than the outcome.

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” – Albert Einstein
An opportunity to explore about oneself and their relationship with others.
