Clare Adrian is a performer, writer, musician, artist, poet, lyricist, one at a time, or in concert - as creative director of Claritivity Productions.
Claritivity Productions grew from thoughts that rhyme their way out of Clare Adrian’s mind, land on her piano keys, float out on notes of songs onto the stage where she performs the concoctions that entertainingly illustrate whatever she’s asked to teach an audience.
To date, some topics “claritivitied” have been:
parenting, child development concepts, prevention of teen pregnancy, violence and drug/alcohol use, recycling, kid’s stories and songs, and seasonal songs.
Give Clare a topic and she’ll give it wings - ‘r notes...
Oh, and by the way: There’s lots of info out there that state the problems. Claritivities offer solutions - in an easily digested artsy manner!
Clare’s also available for music, poetry, performance, for sheer artistry and enjoyment of it, educational or not!
Clare originally founded Claritivity Productions to present multi-media, performance-arts programs to effectively help prevent and replace abusive behaviors.
Clare is dedicated to education through the arts, especially in various areas of abuse prevention of children, women, environment and animals. Through skills as writer, performer, musician, composer, poet, and playwright, she encapsulates the topics she teaches into a multi-media format.
