Personal Creativity

Creativity is the birthright of every human being. Yet, too often we view creativity as a limited resource that flourishes only in geniuses. Fortunately, there is growing recognition of “everyday creativity,” a creativity that we all possess, that can be expressed in every area of life and that we can exercise and grow as long as we are alive. Embrace and express your everyday creativity in one of our many courses.
