Where do ideas come from? How do you pursue them? How do you keep creativity alive throughout your life? Who in your life encouraged you along the way?

Join moderator Fran Stoddard, former VPR and Vermont PBS host, for a three-part series exploring the Spark of Creativity through a lens of Music, Entrepreneurism, and Education.

This final conversation in the series features special guests Judy Klima and Rebecca Schwarz to explore creativity in education.


Rebecca is an active artist and Adjunct Faculty at Champlain College. Rebecca is also the Coordinator of Burlington City Arts’ Art from the Heart program, connecting volunteers, patients, caregivers and art supplies at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Creativity, imagination, and expression open up possibilities in gentle and playful ways, transforming care and helping us all feel better through art.


Judy is the Arts Coach for Burlington’s Integrated Arts Academy. She works closely with classroom teachers, local artists, art organizations, and other community members to provide a network of opportunities in the arts for our students.

This series is a collaboration between All Souls Interfaith Gathering, Shelburne’s Pierson Library, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Museum, and Media Sponsor, RETN.
