Creativity Exploration: Knots and Knowledge  

Saturday, October 12, Noon-1:30pm

Inspired by the sculpture of El-Salahi’s Meditation Tree, participants will create a personal tree sculpture embedding it with imagery of their life journey.

Creativity Exploration workshops promote the benefits of creative exploration and the mind to-body experience. In addition to producing a sense of well-being, sessions expand participants’ perceptions of forms, while increasing brain connectivity through visual and cognitive stimulation. The workshop is led by educator Lark Keeler, a specialist in mindfulness education.

Creativity Exploration is sponsored by the Charles P. Ferro Foundation.
