CE artist Melody Lima and teaching artist Pilar Olabarria create unique felt bags that inspired this week's Imaginate Saturdays activity.

Have you ever wanted to join the CE studio? Now is your time.

Creativity Explored is proud to announce Imaginate Saturdays, our new weekly public program that brings CE artists and community members together to make art.

Imaginate Saturdays is a place where people of all ages and abilities can join together to explore the power of creativity. CE artist interns and teaching artists will engage you in a variety of fun, open-ended, and accessible artmaking activities for people at all levels of artistry. No experience needed!

Each Saturday from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm participants can explore a mix of open art time and teacher-guided special projects like printmaking, wire sculpture, collaging, and papermaking.

Come IMAGINATE with our artists!
