Lookback: Connection & Community Celebrated at 6 Degrees of Creativity

I can’t believe it, but this week marks the ending of the first round of 6 Degrees of Creativity! This on-line community sponsored by The Art Therapy Alliance launched in October 2011 featured 6 different workshops by a group of 6 inspiring instructors from the art therapy community to explore hands-on concepts, techniques, and ideas related to themes about transformation, collaboration, and using art for good.

This adventure was a fun to organize and host: The offering brought together art therapists, art therapy students, and artists from all over the world for an inspiring and supportive space with lots of creative happenings and activity.  Check out the wordle below that includes feedback received from 6 Degrees of Creativity members about their experience: 


In line with the The Art Therapy Alliance’s purpose, connection and community were important experiences that I hoped this offering would continue to create, as well as an opportunity to inspire art-making, cultivate creating, and to nurture participant’s creative practice. I sincerely thank the instructors who were a core foundation to everyone’s 6 Degrees of Creativity experience and helping make this experience happen: Kristina Bell DiTullo, Lani Gerity, Cathy Malchiodi, Jen Navarro, and Katarina Thorsen

Here’s a video lookback at some of the creative goodness that has been created from over 400+ photos and art shared since October:

This experience reinforced the importance and benefits of connecting, creating, and inspiring that can grow when we share and foster our creativity alongside others. Lots of creative goodness was sparked the last few months, not only among and shared with those participating in 6 Degrees of Creativity, but spread to others in our daily lives, work, and relationships…Very cool!

Look for more news coming in the very near future about another round of 6 Degrees of Creativity for this summer!
