Christina Cappelletti, MA, MSW
Several years ago, during the 18th year of my Social Justice Work career, I hosted an Artist's Way book gathering in the local community center.
WHAM! Just like that, the Secret Artist within... the one who had sneaked in the back door of every one of my jobs offering to create newsletters, fliers, posters, therapeutic art...the one that came out at holidays to make gifts for people... the one who held various gatherings in the community as a way to connect creatively with others... she came DANCING on out and said, "Hey! I want to be out front and do my thing! I'm not going back into hiding! Get busy and get me some work!"
So, I got "busy." I enrolled in a multi-media design program at a local college. I was hired as the marketing and graphic design person to help start a computer services company. I opened Cappelletti Designs, Visual and Community Arts, bringing together my unique blend of public relations and creative design skills for businesses and agencies.
Going yet deeper into my dream a few years later, I set up my SoulStudio and began offering community arts gatherings.
Dangerously, I hosted another Artist's Way group -- warning, this book WILL CHANGE your life!
I found myself myself quitting my job, and heading out on a Creative Sabbatical in Big Sky Country -- a place that has inspired me ever since a childhood camping trip opened my mind to the wild west.
As a result of my adventures and dreams, and my identity as a community artivist, I launched SoulStudio Arts. I offer arts workshops, classes, salons and retreats, to encourage others to dive on into their own creative pools and follow their dreams.
And I make art with a lot of my time -- finally -- the artist's life of my dreams!
I have years of listening, facilitation, marketing and artistic skills to offer for your ideas and projects. I can do anything from logos and brochures to wedding invitations to customized artistic gifts to classes to creative gatherings and retreats to full-scale community events.
Have you got a creative need, project or dream in mind? Let me help you get it going!
