Club Meeting-Guest Speaker Sara Ascalon: "Creativity: A Conversation with Yourself"


The event was held on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

Humans are innately creative creatures. For many, that creativity is freely expressed. For others, that expression is shackled by repression. Sara's presentation provides insight on how to tap into the creative energy within you and experience the joy of letting go and sharing your vision with others.

BIOGRAPHY: “What is it like being inside that head of yours?”  I’ve always had a slightly off-beat way of looking at the world and have been asked that question many times over. But how do you respond to something like that? After decades of searching, I found my answer in photography.

Photography allows me to reproduce my vision in a shareable, accessible form. Whether it’s the things I see with my eyes or my mind, I can capture a moment, a view, or a flight of fancy and relive it with those who honor me by coming along for the ride. From the things you see everyday and tend to overlook, to the absolutely extraordinary, it’s a strange and wonderful world.

I seek to share that wonder – real and imagined – in my images and inspire and embolden my students to unleash their own creativity and do the same.


Westminster Presbyterian Church

Driving to and from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Care must be taken when driving to and from the church, since it is adjacent to US 202 (on the southbound side) and this is a busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic. Traveling to the church from West Chester and the northern side. Drive south on High Street or US 202 Southbound. After passing Stetson Middle School on the right, be aware that West Pleasant Grove Road is the very next right-hand turn after the jug handle at the Stetson light (about 500 yards down). Slow down as you come to this turn, then make a right and then a left into the church parking lot. Traveling to the church from the south side. Option 1: You can come north on US and turn left into West Pleasant Grove Road but there is no light there and it’s a dangerous turn and not recommended. Option 2: Come north on US 202 and make a left onto Route 926, Street Road. Drive on 926 for 0.9 miles, make a right on South New Street, drive 0.6 miles, make a right on West Pleasant Grove Road, drive 0.8 miles and make a right into the church parking lot. Parking and entering the church. The church is a large facility and there are many entrances. We need to enter via the main entrance, which is a large feature of the church with a stone portico. You can’t miss it. Park anywhere near there; there are plenty of spaces. Please do not park in any restricted spaces. Leaving the church. To travel south, you can leave the church lot and travel south on US 202. Merge carefully! To travel north, note that you can NOT make a left onto US 202 northbound. You must do one of the following. Option 1: Travel South on US 202 to Route 926, then make a left and use the shopping center parking lot to change directions to the northbound road. Option 2: Leave the parking lot by turning left on West Pleasant Grove Road, then make a right on South New Street. New Street will take you north through the WCU campus and into West Chester. (Make a right on Rosedale to get back to High Street.)
