Since 2015, The Photo Experience’s Creativity Building session has offered Smartphone Photography coupled with other activities such as drawing (on the right side of the brain), private docent-led museum tours, artist studio visits, and gallery walks. The program inspires fresh thinking, experiential learning, personal growth, professional development, and fun!

In a world overwhelmed by information, creativity is no longer a personal journey reserved for artists only but an opportunity for everybody, the general public, to engage across interdisciplinary platforms.

What kinds of art or statements do you wish to make?
