We are Amy Tingle and Maya Stein. In 2013, we co-founded The Creativity Caravan with a desire to build community through creative action, and to deliver creative experiences to people everywhere. Together, we have 15 years' experience facilitating art and writing workshops for children and adults, and we have spent a combined 30 years refining our own practice as writers and artists.
Our vintage caravan, a 1965 Covered Wagon named "MAUDE" (Mobile Art Unit Designed for Everyone), serves as our creative hub and home away from home when we are not at our studio in Montclair, New Jersey. (Our newly acquired "Craftcycle" joins us for in-town events.) With a unique menu of offerings for all ages, The Creativity Caravan invites everyone to the table. We also partner with schools, libraries, bookstores, schools, community centers, and other organizations to design and facilitate inspiring and inclusive programs for all ages.
