CIF Project Summary

Creative Expressions Art Nights

A series of community crafting events with offerings held both online and in-person. This project is a celebration of meeting and making, a social way to share your passion for craft, art, and design with the community.

Get social and creative by partaking in community-building activities. Bring a creative project you are working on, or come and see what everyone else is working on.

One free mini-tutorial is offered at each event to get our creativity flowing. In-person events provide participants who attend with the supplies, tools, snacks, and know-how at no cost to participants. Online events will showcase the projects and process of creations made at home.

Creative Expressions Art Nights is led by a peer who is interested in holding community events that provide opportunities for other peers to socialize and create artwork to improve their wellbeing.
