Creativity is the best way to broaden the mind, increase motivation and sharpen problem-solving skills. It is also the fun part of being human. Artistree/Purple Crayon Productions is a platform that lets all and sundry explore their creative side. Through programs, workshops, retreats, and the Artistree community, everyone - adults, teenagers, and children - can delight in finding a hobby or two.
The activities center toward building community and encouraging self-discovery, self-reflection, and appreciation. The community plugs in through participation, sharing, constructive critiquing, self-teaching, and learning together.
There are age-appropriate classes, workshops, and even a history class on ceramics. The programs' designs ensure optimum interaction, participation, and skill growth. For instance, there is a class without the guidance of an instructor for participants to hone their skills.
Ceramics workshops focus on improving ability, clinics concentrate on problematic areas, and critique sessions are forums for discussing each other's ceramic creations. All these classes nurture skills, stimulate socialization and amplify enjoyment.
All ages can learn the art of public speaking under the theatre art program. The skills come in handy for stand-up comedy aspirants or someone who wants to make a killer speech at a wedding.

Prior dancing experience is not a requirement.
