The Adams County Arts Council’s 3rdthursday series resumes online on May 21 with a presentation by artist and writer Sarah Bigham. Her program, offered via Zoom, is “Creativity in a Crisis.”

During the presentation, Sarah will share her story of creative development, born of a personal health crisis, and lead participants in some creativity exercises that can be easily tried while participating from home. The COVID-19 situation provides all of us with a potential opportunity to explore creative outlets. Learn about Sarah’s journey and explore how you might also harness your own creativity in the face of this or any other crisis. The program is free to the public, but pre-registration is required. Contact to sign up.

Born and raised in Gettysburg, Sarah Bigham is a professor in the Social Sciences and Education Department at Frederick Community College. She returned to creative endeavors in 2015 in the face of a health crisis. Her abstract watercolors, which often display her creative use of dissolved medications and other unconventional “paints,” have been featured in literary magazines and on display in art exhibits; her poetry, essays, and short stories have appeared in over 100 journals; and her first book, Kind Chemist Wife: Musings at 3 AM, was recently released by Pski’s Porch Publishing.
