“Students in the Creative Expressions LLC bond over their shared passion for creativity. They enroll because they want to be a part of exciting projects and artistic endeavours, and they want to build life skills along the way. Our community is connected to many performance groups and clubs on campus including dance teams, theatre companies and the photography club. Creative Expressions students also participate in events like Lady Eaton College’s annual photography contest and art auction.
The Creative Expressions LLC participates in several unique and exciting events every year. This year, our LLC hosted the Haunted Drumlin which called on the skills of visual artists, technical designers, actors, and dancers to make this haunted walk come to life. In the winter semester we plan on having a speaker series with local artists giving virtual presentations to our community weekly. As a community we will explore how to give powerful presentations, build breathtaking displays, and write passionately with a clear voice.”
