Years ago, the C&T Publishing team started kicking around the idea of creating online workshops featuring our authors. In 2020, the idea became a reality with a herculean undertaking led by a small group at C&T.
Creative Spark Online Learning is especially important now that our community is craving connection, inspiration, and creativity.
The goal is to provide our authors, who, before 2020, were traveling and teaching at in-person events, a chance to share their creative skills and years of expertise to everyone, online. We don’t mean to brag, but C&T Publishing authors are award-winning artists, teachers, and masters in their field, internationally known and loved by adoring students.
Each Creative Spark instructor will challenge you to explore, expand and elevate your skills!
