FRIDAY EVENING GALA
Improvise! Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously
Improvisation is at the heart of living creatively. Music, dance, theater, drawing, cooking, conversation, play, child rearing, and even science benefit from the flexibility of mind that improvisational process engenders. Leave with mind tools, tips and a fresh perspective on how to apply improv skills learned in life to your patchwork – and vice versa!
