Have you heard? Creativity is the new Vitamin C. Research proves that engaging in small acts of creativity in everyday life increases our overall wellbeing, and The Center for Health & Wellbeing offers ways to do just that. Visit bit.ly/TheNewVitaminC to discover additional upcoming community education programs that serve your dose of Vitamin C.

Unleash your creativity while meeting others in this interactive program on clay creations! Join Clay Artist Liz Kitchens as she guides you in designing your own necklace, bracelet, and/or earrings using colorful polymer clay beads. Kitchens will demonstrate a simple, quick procedure: how to condition, cut and sculpture polymer (Sculpy/Femo) clay before baking it in a portable oven and stringing the creation into jewelry. Learn how to create wearable art that you’ll want to proudly show off to friends and family!

Special Note: The registration fee includes program materials.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • create clay jewelry in a fun, relaxing and social environment.
  • exercise your creative muscles to think more creatively about your life and wear your creation.
  • understand and experience how your creativity can contribute to personal growth and healing.

This program is presented by Liz Kitchens and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
