Grab your permission slips and load up the busses because we’re headed on a FieldTrip! These small group gatherings provide another opportunity to learn, connect and network outside of actual CreativeMornings events. FieldTrips are held at a different place each month and are on a first come first serve basis. January’s FieldTrip took us to Just Add Honey for tea tasting and a behind-the-scenes tour with founders, Jermail and Brandi Shelton. In February, we ventured over to Mary Stanley Studios in Midtown with Young Collector’s Club for a night of learning about beginning your own art collection, a tour of Mary’s in home studio and a view of her private collection. This month, we will be heading to a Storytelling Workshop with Friendly Human! We’ll be going behind the scenes to discover how they approach strategy, content and design. This month’s field trip is full, but click here to join the waitlist. Follow us on Instagram for a roundup of previous FieldTrips and be the first to know about where we are stopping next!
