Create Art and Tea

There is one thing that is a constant source of inspiration and uplift to the Human Spirit—Art.

The Creative Spirit of Art carries its own unique movement of expression, in multi-dimensional experimentation and representation. In this realm of expression, our deepest emotions and hidden passions can come to life. Art gives us the opportunity to live in the moving moment that is felt within. We experience a union there. And this union feeds our search for that movement. It motivates the artist, the creator. A sacred circle is completed.

The great union of Spirit and Creative Expression seeks its source through many interpretations. There is fascinating research that studies, in depth, Spirit’s connection with Art—for example Monet and his Impressionist paintings. Interpretations long to enter a deeper knowing of the art form. There is a feeling of connection that yearns to reveal the original inspiration. Or perhaps to simply journey in its Wonder!

Create’s Mission is to represent and promote the Creative Spirit that lives in us all, to honor our connection to Inspiration and Creativity. There are many different mediums represented in our “Little Shop of Wonders.”
