Create2Connect is a creative coaching program founded by artist and designer Kendra L. Earls who has worked over 20 years as an art instructor for all ages. In her experience as a visual art instructor, she has witnessed how art connects people to their inner creative self and transforms their view of life and the world around them. Also, being creative through art-making opens peoples' minds to many possibles and how the practice of being creative filters into peoples' personal lives in finding new ways of solving problems, looking at things differently, and creates a more peaceful existence.
Kendra has worked as an art instructor for Somersfield Academy, Kaleidoscope Art Foundation, and Masterworks Foundation where she is the Education Officer. Also, she's held programs and workshops in stage design at Cedarbridge Academy and Berkeley Institute as well as held art workshops throughout the island and in her own personal art studio. Kendra has hosted workshops in Intuitive Painting for adults and for 6 years she worked with seniors living with Alzheimer's and dementia using art as a form of therapy.
Create2Connect facilitates an expressive space for people to create without judgment and where there is no wrong or right. It allows freedom of expression and imagination and the opportunity to go through the creative process and where participates can find their unique way of creating. The goal is to be able to use the same creative process in all areas of one's life.
Kendra holds workshops for groups in Transformative art which is a creative practice that uses art to help people to begin to open up to their creative potential. Then learn how to use the creative process in life, to create consciously the life they want. She also holds workshops in team building for corporate staff members, business teams, and community groups to help cultivate creative ways to approach goals, adapting to change, and develop team engagement. There are also Intuitive Painting workshops where people get the opportunity to have fun creating from their imagination and learning to trust the inner artist. Also, they learn effective principles to help create an effective painting.
