Team-Building That Transforms
Creative Collaborations is the only team-building program that unites your team in a groundbreaking, goal-oriented, creative process. It results in a professional finished piece of art that reflects your mission and vision.
How important is your mission and vision, and how do you support your team in sharing it?
Welcome to Creative Collaborations, a Creative Awakenings program that was inspired by “The Spread Your Wings Project,” my 501(c)3. The Spread Your Wings Project creates massive pairs of angel wings in community with children and vulnerable populations.
Creative Collaborations was developed specifically for corporations and hospitals who have a strong, caring corporate culture.
As a professional artist, bestselling author, creativity facilitator and speaker working towards a master’s degree in art therapy, I’ve devoted my life to helping others enjoy the profound benefits of creativity and art-making. These can include decreased stress and anxiety, increased well-being, a greater sense of connection and the joy of being fully present in the moment.
When team-building becomes an interactive, professional art-making experience, these benefits are even more accessible.
Creative Collaborations facilitates each participant in using various art supplies to help them visually express the heart and soul of your company, uniting in an unforgettable community arts event. With various art supplies, each individual will visually express the heart and soul of your company in relation to themselves and each other, uniting in an unforgettable community arts event.
On site, the creative expression made by each team member is integrated into a large work of art that comes together before everyone’s eyes.
THE ART WE BEGIN AT YOUR EVENT IS PROFESSIONALLY FINISHED INTO A HIGH-END WORK OF ART THAT REFLECTS YOUR CORPORATE VALUES.

“I didn’t know anything about community art-making before the Chronicon event. What a wonderful way to share who we are as a part of something much bigger. The act of writing my “expression” and putting it on the canvas was incredibly powerful. Thank you!”
From Carey B., Healthline/Chronicon event:
“It felt wonderful to express how I feel about living with a chronic illness without having to “say” the words out loud. Seeing my written expression on big piece of canvas with everyone else’s made me feel that I am not alone in my journey!”

Collaborative art-making super-charges this experience by uniting participants in making something bigger than themselves. When we make art together, we can build trust, bond, communicate and problem solve more effectively. We collectively experience how art can transform, discovering new ways to process stress and cope with anxiety.

From Ian Hockley, Founder, Dylan’s Wings of Change/Wingman
“It is wonderful when two missions come together. We were so fortunate to be connected with Elizabeth, Bobby and Spread Your Wings and could not be any happier with the outcome. From concept, through planning and the painting event and then the final unveiling, this project was a joy to be part of. The Wings show the beauty that humanity can create when it comes together.”
