After doing all these  art-related zoom classes during the last year and one-half, I realized that the basis for all of them is creativity.  (One could say that the basis of a fulfilled life is creativity.)  

so Joe and I want to explore the different aspects of creation, not to define it, but to figure out how different people use creativity in their professions.  We hope to widen everyone's understanding of the wide scope of creativity - from art and music, which is usually associated with "being creative", to science, technology, cooking, and  even translating.  

You will be hearing from some veterans in their fields and people who just have begun the creative process in a new field.

Joan Hill
Owner, Host, & Director

Years ago, it was suggested to Joan that she might offer an art program, and she jumped at the chance of a lifetime. Bringing together all of her life's passions, the development and administration of Artful Journeys is an exhilarating process for Joan.


Joan was born and raised in the apple country of the Hudson River Valley in New York; her father was a gentle, very tolerant, educated land surveyor, and her mother was the efficient business administrator and home engineer. The youngest of four children, Joan was encouraged to pursue anything she wanted, but also to do her best. Sometimes that was very difficult, especially succeeding three very accomplished siblings.
