Workshop Facilitation

My workshops are designed to utilize the creative process of art-making to educate and empower. Each theme can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your company, organization, agency, group or place of worship. Whether you’re in the market for creative team-building activities for your employees, or are looking for someone to encourage a greater sense of cooperation and cohesion among your group members, I am available to conduct an art-based experiential workshop on a wide range of topics for your next event or conference.
