Presented by artist Kijsa Housman.
MAKEing your life more creative isn't necessarily adding an art studio to your home (although that is quite awesome!). It is looking at the ordinary in extraordinary ways. It is tackling mundane tasks with a creative scope. It is using your mind and hands in new and refreshing ways. Creativity doesn't just make life better, it is the key to problem solving and new perspectives.
In this presentation Kijsa Houseman will cover: MAKEing space for creativity in your day, listening in a creative way from meetings to homework and acting on creative instincts.
MAKE was founded in 2014 by Kijsa Housman. A classically trained artist with over 20 years of professional experience, art, teaching and design have always been a significant part of her life. While her study concentrated on 2-D studio art, living life as a professional artist brought many unusual commission opportunities for her to tackle creative problem solving. Fast forward through lots of paint, murals, messes and years. As the walls of her Lowertown studio began to burst with artwork, orders, Etsy shop inventory and classes, she knew she needed more space. And not just any space?a space that would be a hub of creativity, bringing people together, and support the local community. From there MAKE came to BE.
