Community Focus

Creative Adventures Inc. goal is to be a profound force for art in our surrounding community. Through collective artistic expression, our community projects aim to infuse our ever expanding network with creative spirit and goodwill. 

After the experience in Africa, November 2016, I put my wish out loud to “the Universe” I will love to bring more color to the World!!!  and in the last months I created three more murals with the students and their communities.

Let me know if you will be interested to create a unique and wonderful project, to transform your community and bring more Color to it too!

The graduate Class of 4 and 5 years old, invited me to help them to create a legacy gift for the school. The children painted the cloth used for the letters and vines and then draw their own flowers and bugs to add to the mural at the Nursery School foyer.
