get connected

Art making is a physical process which grounds us in our bodies, enhances communication, connection, and helps us remember who we are. Honoring our curiosity through creative play helps us to stretch and grow. Sarah Crooks (Flaire) has been teaching art-making as community process for over 25 years. She has taught workshops in her private studio as well as at The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, Museum of Science and History, UNF Environmental Center, Florida State College Jacksonville, Duval County Public Schools, Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra, Baptist Health MD Anderson and The Cathedral Arts Project.

Sarah taught the class at many levels, from the freeing movement of charcoal on paper to the exhilarating shift of perspective in negative space. In her teaching, everything has meaning and everything has value worthy of portrayal. Her welcome and non-judgemental style, her skill and persistence led to a powerful learning experience.
