Creative Nest Women's Groups


Welcome to Creative Nest – a transformative 12-week experience designed just for you. Creative Nest small groups for women are a combination of art-making, writing, guided meditation, reflection, and conversation supporting exploration of yourself and the world around you, all in an environment of empathy, compassion, humor, and fun. The arts are an integral part of this process, however, it's important to note that no art experience, confidence, talent, or success is necessary. 


Creative Nest is for YOU if:

  • You feel a spark inside when you think about exploring your innate creativity

  • You long for a space to gather with other women to explore and grow

  • You would love a safe place to stretch yourself, and feel heard, seen, and supported 

  • You'd love to see how playing with the arts will open up new parts of you;

  • You're feeling restless, ready for something new, maybe even an adventure and you're just not sure what that all actually means...


Creative Nest provides a journey full of insight, connection, and empathy, all in the arms of a vibrant community. Each week we focus on a theme, using various artistic and creative tools to uncover and explore a little bit more of you and the life you want to have. We make art, share our processes, and provide a compassionate presence as move through the work.


Remember: no art experience, confidence, talent, or success is necessary. In Creative Nest, art is a process that leads to discovery and transformation. There is no right or wrong or good or bad. Activities are simple and designed to stimulate your imagination.
