Learning to express your thoughts and feelings is an important theme in Nicole Rubel’s work. In this 90-minute presentation, she will share the childhood story of how she started finding her voice thanks to an inspirational art teacher’s project. For Rubel, growing up as a twin eventually sparked some imaginative, poignant and comical storylines but there was a time when it also impeded her self-expression. Attendees will learn about the challenges of finding a voice and the rewards of learning to use one.
