The Art of Creativity Storytelling 3-Day Workshop at Alice's House, Humarock, Scituate, Massachusetts

May 18, 2012 at 6pm to May 20, 2012 at 2pm
Creativity happens best when you are safe and in charge. With all exercises in this workshop, we appreciate only what’s “alive” and refrain from making comments or suggestions. This creates a trusting atmosphere in which spontaneity and creativity thrives. You need not be a "professional storyteller", just be interested in creativity. For more information visit my Workshop Page.See More
