ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Create & Chill is a space where like-minded people can come together to create, share and connect with themselves and others!
 

No prior artistic experience is necessary – this is a judgment-free zone where you can freely explore various artistic mediums and techniques. Whatever your preferred way of creating may be, our goal is to encourage self-expression and self-discovery.

Consider this your dedicated time to create, just for you.

WHAT THE PROCESS LOOKS LIKE:

  • We meet virtually via ZOOM and begin with short introductions (name, location).
     

  • Each session is 90 minutes and includes art-making and sharing time.
     

  • Each session will have a different prompt to encourage inspiration. All activities, including introductions, video participation, and sharing, are offered as invitations and are optional.
     

  • Bring whatever materials or media you have available. If specific materials are needed, we will let you know in advance.
     

  • Participants will have time to explore the theme and will have the opportunity to close the session with personal reflections on their work, if they are open to it.

While initially focusing on dramatic art, Sara has always used creativity as a source of joy and connection, and was inspired by its way to encourage creativity in herself and others.

Rooted in therapeutic practices, Sara’s approach is flexible and client-centred. With a focus on process-based, exploratory creation, she strives to create spaces where individuals can feel safe and secure while engaging with their artistic voice.
