Workshop:         Using Student Experiences to Enhance Creativity
Description:        Each of our students come to us with their own set of experiences, hardships and beliefs.
                                  Encouraging them to create based on their unique experiences is a way to teach them the importance
                                  of their voice. It is a way to instill pride in their uniqueness but also to give them confidence in their
                                  skills. In this workshop, we will cover two to three workshop techniques that I've found useful in
                                  having students create based on their individual experiences. .
