What attendees have in common is the desire to challenge themselves, to discover, and to explore their creativity and learn about their creative blocks, in a relaxed, fun, non-judgmental environment. Most feel they are not creative at all, but come away with a seed planted in their mind about their under-used creativity, as well as tools to grow and strengthen it. It's for folks who are interested in personal growth, those who are bored, curious, or looking for more meaning and interest in life.

    Our Winnipeg art workshops are hosted by Carmela Wade (BA, BFA) and Sandra Brown (BA, BFA). We are both practicing mixed-media artists on a mission to share our creative methods to help inspire others to encounter and gently foster their innate creativity. We've designed special projects and instructions to guide even the most reluctant "non-creative" people.
  • What methods are used / What happens in your workshops?
    As practicing artists, we regularly take time to play. This critical creative process involves lots of experimenting. We gently guide you through each step of a project, while allowing each participant to playfully experiment and make their own creative choices. We've designed beginner friendly, hands on, projects in a variety of mediums to create an experience that gently guides you to your own creative voice, and ensures success for everyone. Each person ends up with a result different from other attendees - an expression of their unique creative voice. We use quality supplies that give attendees the best experience with the materials, and allow them to learn to find and use them on their own. We create a judgement free, non-competitive environment where participants are allowed to play without criticism - of self or others. These are baby steps that guide you to your own creative intuition, and with practice, build up your confidence in that voice.
