If this is the first time you are hearing about 6 Degrees of Creativity you will be so glad you stopped by! Gretchen Miller has developed an amazing collection of 6 online workshops for you to dive into at your own pace. In her words, "6 Degrees of Creativity unites concepts of social networking, connecting, collaboration, art-making, and creativity into an engaged global community of artists exploring transformation and using art for good". I can attest to the connection and collaboration this leads to - I was lucky enough to have been instructor for 6 Degrees of Creativity in 2012 - I am grateful to have met so many great artists and art therapists from around the world and happy to be able to continue networking and collaborating online.
The workshops will be open from March 2014 to December 2014 and costs only $49 (US) for the whole thing - the workshops will be filled with techniques and inspiration for collage, collaborations and challenges, self-care and more!
Gretchen Miller is a registered and board certified art therapist working in Cleveland Ohio. She is also the founder of the Art Therapy Alliance and has an active blog, Creativity in Motion. You should also follow her on Instagram for inspiring posts of her daily art projects and beautiful pictures of sunshine peeking through everywhere. I first met Gretchen in 2010 when she organized a speaker presentation through the Buckeye Art Therapy Association. A few of us art therapists from the Michigan Association of Art Therapy carpooled to Cleveland for the event. Gretchen was friendly and welcoming and the event was well worth the drive. Gretchen does a wonderful job of building community and I am really looking forward to this years 6 Degrees of Creativity workshops!
