Participants have the opportunity to choose the theme for their creation at the beginning of the workshop. Through the process, the instructor demonstrates an array of processes including adaptive techniques for challenged individuals. Participants are presented with a variety of choices during each project. This selection process provides a sense of individual creativity within the guided environment. Confidence and pride are plentiful as the participant departs with their creation to display to family and friends.
