“There was so many practical ideas for integrating creative arts in a meaningful way and not just as an add on workshop.”

“The program was very profound & transformative. I am not the same person who arrived here.”

This certificate program fuses adult education theory and practice with the creative arts. You will discover how to draw out participant’s creativity in fun ways which contribute to transformational learning experiences. In a reflective learning community, you will have multiple opportunities to develop, facilitate sessions and engage others in learning experiences using the creative arts. If you are an artist wanting to use your art form to engage others, or an educator/ community development worker who wants to creatively enrich your programs, then this program will be helpful to you.
