About Clare

Clare Adrian is a performer, speaker, writer, musician, artist, poet, lyricist, one at a time, or in concert - as creative director of Claritivity Productions.

Some topics “claritivitied” have been: parenting, child development concepts, prevention of teen pregnancy, violence and drug/alcohol use, recycling, kid’s stories and songs, seasonal songs and custom songs.

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, to effectively help prevent and replace abusive behaviors.


​"If we are ever going to break through the patterns intrinsic to abusiveness, we need innovative programs that are competitive with the hypnotic spell of media ploys used to sell just about anything. Claritivity programs meet that criteria." Clare Adrian

Partial Reviews

"Clare's presentation struck me as the most uplifting presentation on parenting that I have seen, a sonnet on parenting to make Shakespeare take notice!" Beth Bridgeman, Book Consultant , Hannibal Public Library


"Her teaching through poems - a very dramatic imprint on the mind." Educare Training Resource Worker


“Your non-judgementalism is awesome, noticed by everyone in the group and appreciated, is a real gift, surprises them.” Participant of Educare training workshop


“Her unique presentation style allows her to connect with her audience in a meaningful manner. She brings charm, wit and a wealth of knowledge about parenting and child development to her presentations.”

—MO EduCare Coordinator, Mary Jo Herde


“You should do it worldwide,” Poetic Parenting workshop participant


"As a board-certified pediatrician devoted to the care of infants and children for over half a century, my heart has been touched by the wisdom and loving-kindness flowing through Clare Adrian's poetry, prose, music, and theatrical presentations. Her epic and extraordinary body of work offers parents (and grandparents, etc.) the insight, solace and humor sorely needed to raise healthy, loving and confident children.

Clare provides a mirror into the feelings and thoughts of even the youngest infants and children, and in so doing she provides exciting prescriptions based on love, understanding and humor instead of criticism, miscues and erroneous beliefs.

I invite educators, nurses, physicians, and above all, parents and soon-to-be parents, to immerse themselves in her wisdom."
