Advice on life from the developmentally disabled artists at Creativity Explored.

Lisick first became familiar with Creativity Explored when she lived around the corner from the studio/gallery in San Francisco’s Mission District. In the preface to Tell You What, she writes: “I’d check out the current show, maybe buy cards or gift wrap, but I never ventured back into the studio to meet the artists or watch them work. . . .I imagined if I stepped over that threshold, all sorts of things could happen. What if I got into a long conversation I didn’t know how to get out of? What if an artist wanted me to buy their art and I had to say no? . . . . What if I was so overcome with Big Feelings that I cried? What if I didn’t want to leave?”
