Permission to Dream and Create

Have you given yourself permission to dream in this season?  We have been on a journey in 2022 to re-discover our dreams.  Wherever you are on that journey, we’d love to give you an opportunity to express yourself creatively in the art medium of your choice!

We are hosting a summer art contest for our Compass and Options clients.  Our community is filled with really artistic and creative individuals with something to say!  We would love to see what our dream theme means to you in art form.  Interpretation is up to you!
