Here's an excerpt from their site...click this link to learn more...

"Our philosophy is to create a moment in time where artists, whether they be faculty or students, can come together to share in their passion for creativity. To create, self nourish, replenish personal creative resources and to nurture not only individual souls but the souls of those around them. Whether creating something is part of your daily routine or indeed the closest to creating has been using a glue stick – there is something for everybody.

In the last three years words of joy and, tears of happiness have been shared . Friendships have been forged and we have witnessed lives changing."
