Who is this training for?

In CF1 we hope that you discover how creative you actually are and that we all have an innate ability to express ourselves—once we know we don’t have to be perfect! Also, although you’ll be learning to lead creative activities, no experience with the arts is required. This training is for anyone who wants to jump start their creativity including beginning and advanced facilitators. In particular this training will benefit teachers, youth workers, counselors, teaching artists, social service professionals, life coaches, and people who lead adult trainings.
