COLE ADAMS, STORYTELLING ARTIST & TEACHER
I love to create environments where students work in community to bring their creativity to life. I love seeing students enjoy creating something from their heart. I hope to create an environment of acceptance and creative risk taking. Art is so much a game of problem solving and making a series of deeply personal choices to create something you love in the end.
As an artist, I live my life out loud and am always creating - everyday in fact. After completing an art degree, in college I set about living my life in a creative way. Through my business, Woo Hoo Creative, I work with families, individuals, churches & businesses to have their stories and values come to life in commissioned works of art. My work blends acrylics, fiber art, public speaking, sculpture, journaling and storytelling.
Being a part of a creative team is the best and Darcie Saunders will be joining us on this lovely making journey.
