By definition, the word creative is “to have the quality of something created rather than imitated". In MORE’s Creative Arts component, this quality is achieved through common dignity, opportunity, decisions and the process of creating versus “mass production”. Three integral facets of this process are Respect: for the individual, the art piece and all who walk through our doors; Responsibility: for our resources, our time, our peers and our actions; and lastly, Choice. Choice is not just an occasional option; it is evident every day when the artists arrive and choose the projects/workshops they want to pursue. Some of the choices focus on audio visual workshops, painting techniques, collage, fabric arts, jewelry, music and dance. Their work is exhibited in the Something MORE Artists’ Gallery and is available for sale. Earned income for this amazing art gives these talented individuals a sense of purpose, pride and accomplishment.
