Celebrating Diversity: November Artist-Educator Workshops a Great Success

From November 14-16, CCL, the Tett Centre, and Kick Start Arts Society came together with artist educators from Toronto to Kingston for three days of transformational professional development. Led by facilitators Sheena Robertson, Paula Wing, Shannon Brown, and CCL’s founder and CEO Angela Elster, participants pushed their own comfort zones and expanded their teaching toolkits through activities, reflection, and discussion.

Said one participant: “Lovely facilitators — perfect balance of honesty, experience, knowledge, skill, humour, structure, activity. LOVED IT!!”

If you’d like to join us for another professional development workshop series, stay tuned! We will offer the next series on February 27, 28, and March 1, followed by our third series from April 10-12. Details to come!

    [Westport Centre for Creative Learning] is not merely a portal by which to get away from all the forces that drain the spirit, but a means to arrive at something essential, something real in one’s own creative process.  CCL nourishes body and soul—like its pond stirred up by a gentle waterfall, time spent there is both tranquil and moving.

    I've helped to facilitate writing workshops in a lot of beautiful places conducive to creativity, but none more beautiful or more conducive than Angela Elster's [Centre for Creative Learning].

    The Westport Centre for Creative Learning is a wonderful, immersive experience, both a sanctuary and a creative hub. Whether you want to reflect while wandering the gorgeous grounds and gardens or engage in conversations around the fire, the Centre is an absolute gem - a welcoming oasis for the creative spirit in us all.

    It was a wonderful literary weekend writers’ workshop program at the Centre for Creative Learning that left everyone milling about the parked cars not wanting to leave CCL, not wanting to say their goodbyes, nor end the powerful magic of a perfect time devoted to craft and meaning.

    I was honoured to take part in the [Centre for Creative Learning’s] first poetry workshop weekend. The natural beauty, generosity and care behind this unique and exciting creative learning centre made my experience nothing but outstanding.
