Professional Development -- Arts-Based Professional Development to Fuel Creativity

Our Ignite workshops create an experience that allows everyone to use art as a tool for inquiry––personally, professionally, and within the organization. We believe bringing art and business together fosters collaboration, increases understanding among people, and creates a culture of creativity. All of our programs are perfect for first-time artists.
