The Creativity Experiment is a membership community where you will receive insights and prompts to elevate and explore your creative expression.
What can you expect from The Creativity Experiment Membership?
Conversations with Jean Val and Kelly will share what we have been exploring over many years through art and personal development and spark new thoughts, ideas and mostly self- reflections that you can grow with.
A creative experiment each month to provoke your own creativity. Some will be using our hands or bodies and some, simply our minds. We will be doing these as well so we will share our outcomes and further curiosities.
Interactive Online Community
Interactions with people from all over, connecting us and with collective energy, spurring us on to bravely try new things. To say and do things in new ways that will create momentum and allow us all to be more ourselves.
Extra Resources and Insights
Insights we think will be helpful through the month. These may be prompted by your questions that arise through the community and experiments.
Recommendations & Resources
Products, books, resources etc. that we have tested and recommend to help you get what you need and not waste energy searching.

The Creativity Experiment is designed to help you be creative in all areas of your life.
"I have been in the experiment for over a month and can already notice a difference in my thinking and behavior. The three creators of the experiment all think outside the box, and are so encouraging This is a safe non-judgmental community in which to share ideas and your journey. Plus, you decide your pace!
Just open the door for a month and see for yourself……”
"The Creativity Experiment is so much more than a class to promote creativity. The instruction, insights and experiences offered by Kelly, Jean and Val, as well as the sharing in a community of like-thinking people is a huge encouragement to making personal changes that will lead to a more satisfying creative life.
Thanks so much for all you do for us!"
"For me, the Creativity Experiment has been a pathway to re-explore inner self.
An adventure to explore what motivates me and what brings me joy.
A self-paced environment without criticism or judgment where I am allowed to just be."

Creativity exists in every human expression.
Creativity is ever evolving, there is nothing stagnant or still about creation, so BEing curious and open is vital to keeping creation alive and growing. Personal creativity also seems to grow when we have access to others’ expressions.
This is not a technique course, it is a creative community intended to cultivate more momentum for each of us as a result of the collective. How curious and expressive are you willing to be?
Is this community for you?
- Do you want to spark your creativity in a new way or to connect with other like-minded people who value creativity?
- Do you feel stuck in life, creativity, business or personal?
- Do you struggle with feeling like you are "not enough" or moderating yourself so you aren't "too much"? Or find that you limit yourself with self-judgment?
- Do you stop yourself by saying “you aren’t really an artist”?
If any of these fit, we would love to have you. This monthly membership is designed to open your mind, inspire you and help you grow as a person so if it resonates, it is probably the right fit for you.
**Creativity is not limited to people who create things so you can join us if you are an artist, maker, engineer, parent, visionary, lawyer, strategist, teacher, coach, writer, extrovert, recluse, fitness expert, cashier, etc…Join Now

New insights, experiments and connections each month.
Who we are and how this came about:
A few years ago we, Valori Wells, and Kelly Sheets, started offering international Creatives Retreats to Bali and Morocco mixing Valori's decades as a fiber artist and Kelly's as a leadership/life coach. Then we made The Curiosity Experiment Cards which provoke increasing levels of curiosity in all areas of your life.
This past year, when we were all more isolated and seeking connection, we came up with the idea to start an online community of awesome people who could explore creative expression together.
After the idea was formed we knew that it would be even better to have Jean Wells join us to bring her amazing insights as a long time and well loved artist and teacher!
Our mission is to share all that we know and continue to learn, to help awaken a creative expression that is unique to you.

"I had taken a few classes from Jean Wells and her daughter Valori and was very impressed with their teaching and content. So when the Creativity Experiment was advertised, it took me no time to decide to join the community.
From the start the exercises and experiments had me thinking and seeing in a whole new way. I observed all around me with new eyes which was just exciting. Choosing my intensions of how I want the world to view me was such a thought-provoking exercise.
I want more joy, kindness, and being present in my life and am so grateful for this journey I am now on with the Creativity Experiment. I have great anticipation for the future!"
“I think of The Creative Experiment as a guided journey. All of us creatives struggle at some point along our creative path. I believe that these struggles are unique and individual, but collectively similar which means the insights, experiences, and thought-provoking exercises of
Jean, Kelly and Val are so helpful to creative people in any art form. They guide us to each find our own individual challenges and answers.
In addition, they have provided a forum, a safe place, to share our stumbling blocks and successes while receiving loving support from others on the journey. During the first month, I was finally able to pinpoint what was holding me back from reaching my full potential and then, with their teaching and guidance, have developed my path to a fuller creative life. I am forever grateful!!!”
"I feel lucky to have signed up for the Creativity Experiment. I've been inspired by Jean's and Valori's work for a long time, and immediately knew I'd want to learn about their creative thought processes, explorations, and inspirations. From the very beginning, it's been great--and now that I've become familiar with Kelly, it's just that much better! They each bring different and valuable outlooks, along with introducing other resources.
They're generous with their sharing of ideas, provide both broad and detailed experiments for practice and/or observation, both in a micro and macro way, and they take the fear out of experimentation!
I honestly believe the Creative Experiment is great not just for artists, but can offer growth and development in any area. Additionally, members come from so many geographic areas, and different modes of arts and crafts, and it's interesting to read their comments and input. I definitely recommend the Creativity Experiment to anyone, not just textile and visual artists.”
"What I’ve learned from The Creativity Experiment is that it’s so much more than simply learning a new technique or sharing my latest project. It’s teaching me how to think/create/grow in new ways, not what to think, create or how to “be”.
It has influenced my creative work, yet it’s not a class, nor is it prescriptive. My creativity is still expressed in my own unique way but it’s different and better because I’m challenging myself in ways I may not have discovered on my own.
What I didn’t realize at the beginning is The Creativity Experiment is the interactive framework of a practice. Like yoga, this creative practice will, over time, allow me to stretch my own creativity and allow it to develop in ways I can’t predict today. I expect my creativity to grow as my mental model of creativity becomes more and more ‘limber’.
The Creativity Experiment challenges me to do the work with prompts and resources I hadn’t considered. Yet, growth ultimately depends upon my willingness to fully engage with the topics and the community….and it’s FUN! The anticipation of the reveal of the next experiment feels like waiting for Christmas morning. What will it be?? The monthly format gives me enough time to really do the work, reflect on what I’ve learned and how I may have shifted as a result.
I didn’t know I needed this, but I now believe this will be a lifelong practice. I’m grateful to have trusted partners to lead, interact with and learn alongside."
