Playing on the Edge

A Monthly Introspective Art Group (Sacramento)

First Sunday of the month as well as
every Saturday before the First Sunday


Give yourself the gift of time away from life’s pressures by joining a supportive community of explorers in the Sacramento area who value artistic adventure and compassionate sharing. Playing on the edge means following one’s curiosity and imagination with an open heart and playful attitude, no matter where it leads, trusting that the process will be one of discovery and simple appreciation. No art experience is needed. This workshop is open to men and women.

Delve into a different art medium each month, focusing on your intuitive creativity. An evocative poem will prompt your ideas, then you will create in a quiet atmosphere, and finish with the opportunity to share your art and experience with others.

Because of the popularity of this monthly group, you MUST register for each session before attending. If the group is full for the session you wish to attend, you will be put on a waiting list or invited to attend a different session. To register, contact the facilitator, Carol Mathew-Rogers, to see if there is space.

A “Playing On The Edge” Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for the wonderful Saturday in your home. It was so peaceful and
fun and meaningful and memorable. I’m still soaking it in. I really love how your “invitations” prompted ideas and expression… each one of us having a unique and personal experience.
It’s much more than an art class! Your guidance set the tone, and I’m so grateful for the way you held space for us all.”

In order to expand the creative arts into the world, Creative Edge is always looking for facilitators who have introspective and creative workshops to offer in areas such as visual arts, music, storytelling and other creative opportunities. Partnering with us expands your program reach to the benefit of all our participants. For a facilitator application, or to suggest a workshop, please send an email to


To honor the commitment of registrants and presenters we have a one-week registration deadline for all events unless otherwise noted. If the minimum number of registrants is not reached one week prior to an event, Creative Edge reserves the right to cancel the event. For events cancelled by Creative Edge, 100% of monies paid by registrant will be refunded. You may cancel your registration for an event by its registration deadline and be refunded all but a 10% processing fee or $5 minimum. For cancellations after the registration deadline we regret we cannot offer refunds as the monies are already committed.
