Creative G I R L uses a “gift economy philosophy” meaning as much as possible, the work I do is offered as a gift to support girls and their creativity and true essence. There is a suggested gift amount for my playshops, which pays for supplies, facility rental and may offer a modest wage to support me and my family. Families who cannot afford the suggested amount can apply for scholarships or pay-what-you-can for participation. I am not financially wealthy, but I will not let money prevent me from doing work I believe in for our community: nurturing girls’ creativity, their voices and compassion.

There are countless creative ways to help Creative GIRL: sponsoring girls’ attendance, purchasing and/or donating supplies, and giving of your time and energy to spread the word about Creative GIRL to engage and activate as many girls as possible.

I am grateful we do this together. ❤

We appreciate financial donations to underwrite the cost of some girls’ attendance fees, to ensure this program is accessible to any girl interested, regardless of her financial situation.
We are grateful for donations of creativity products for our playshops.
We thank YOU for your help spreading the word out Creative GIRL, promoting the playshops through your own referrals and social media. While I am aware of the benefits of marketing, I am choosing to invest all money I receive to the girls’ experiences, NOT in promotion. Please tell your friends and family who have daughters by sharing the CG facebook page .
For the FALL 2016 playshops we need watercolor paper, paint brushes, watercolor paints, unlined journals, batik fabrics, children’s board books (any size, to be upcycled), cutting mats, art-grade gel pens and other art supplies. Please contact me for a full list. These do NOT need to be new!

We are grateful to New Moon Girl magazine, a beautiful and empowering ad-free magazine for girls ages 8 and up. New Moon Girl has provided a copy of their magazine to every girl that comes through our summer program. They also offer a discount code LUNAGIFT to receive 10% off the base member price. Thank you NMG!
