The first time I walked into Creativity Explored six years ago. I was hooked. James Montgomery was sitting on the steps. He had wristwatches up his arm and more spilling out of a pouch around his neck. He pointed to them with his wide grin, then moved aside so I could enter the gallery. I was blown away by the rooms filled with artwork and color overflowing on the walls.
I am on a mission to bring everyone I know and love to experience this unique place. What truly stand out to me is how in the most gentle guiding way, the teachers and staff help these artists express their visions, respecting who they are and giving them room to be their amazing selves.
I wanted a place to put my heart. Little did I know how much Creativlty Explored would fill mine.
