The Creativity Workshop:
The Creativity Workshop focuses on developing creative skills in people from all professions: education, business, the arts, sciences, and social services. We offer summer workshops in New York City, Verona in Italy, Crete in Greece, Prague in the Czech Republic, Barcelona in Spain and Lisbon in Portugal. We teach people ways to develop their creativity and use it in life, work, and creative expression. We do this through a unique series of exercises in Creative Writing, Memoir, Art, Photography, Storytelling and Mindfulness. Many teachers and students taking the workshop receive financial help from their schools and can also get 3 university credits and CEUs.
