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. 6 Degrees of Creativity will be offered as a self guided 10 month on-line workshop running from March 2014-December 2014 that includes 6 different workshops.
The basic foundation of 6 Degrees of Creativity empowers the idea that we are all closely connected and believe in the potential to make a difference through the power of art and creativity in our own lives, relationships, communities, and world. 6 Degrees of Creativity will offer inspiring techniques, approaches, and ideas to participants related to exploring and empowering this theme.
The 6 Degrees of Creativity network will include an online community to share, discuss ideas, post art, and deepen connection. Class content (i.e. PDFs, videos, supportive text, photos) will be available until December 31, 2014 for instant inspiration and on going learning.
