As the Head of Well-being programs for a rapidly growing global organization, I am constantly looking for new ways to engage employees and support their health, creativity, and engagement. From our first correspondence, Creative Flow has been clear, thorough, and collaborative. Shannon is easy to work with and presents a clear rationale for why bringing Creative Flow to our employees will benefit them and our organization. Creative Flow brought art making to my department and it was immediately accessible and engaging. There were many opportunities for participants to iterate the experience and apply it to their own skill level and time constraints. People found that this seemingly simple wire sculpture experience not only stoked their creativity but also helped give them a moment for a mental break that helped their thinking and mood. Participants engaged others; it brought a new energy to our day. There is certainly a methodology to Shannon's fun; I'd trust her with both large and small endeavors and we are looking forward to future iterations of Shannon's work.

I’m not always the most creative or artistic. However, my recent session with Creative Flow challenged me on both of those positions. In 30 short minutes, Shannon was able to establish a supportive and calm atmosphere with her words and instruction. She used a simple exercise in drawing the palm lines on our hands and turned them into works of art. She is a perfect teacher and inspirational coach; constantly reminding us to be attentive to the present and to disregard the inner critic that tries to steal the joy.
Again, I marvel at how Shannon was able to inspire authentic self-expression ~true, Creative Flow!

Shannon brought Creative Flow's Wire Work art experience to our event at Yerba Buena Gardens and adults and children alike were compelled to make art. Shannon is an engaging facilitator that helps people of all ages access art making; her participants left feeling inspired and stimulated. Creative Flow's Wire Work was so popular that even the extra supplies were used by the end of the two-hour event. Shannon is relatable, reliable, and a consummate problem solver. She has contracted for us twice; we will continue to hire her in the future.
