Amy Tingle and Maya Stein co-founded The Creativity Caravan in 2013 -- a studio, gallery and imaginarium -- to spark, engage and nourish creativity in people and communities everywhere. A few examples: workshops on making tiny books, on the spot typewriter poetry, evenings creating community & connection through storytelling, letter-writing, drawing & music, Brave Girls Art Summer Camp, and gallery exhibitions. To be honest, I'm in awe of the creativity that exudes from Amy & Maya!
After 2 years at a brick & mortar space in downtown Montclair, Amy & Maya are ready to hit the road and become a mobile business again. Come bid them Bon Voyage at the "It's Not Farewell: Grand Closing Celebration" on Saturday December 22 from 4 - 8 pm, 28 South Fullerton Ave, Montclair NJ.
