Creativity

 

6 classes, 1 ½ - hrs. ea.

 

What is it? Is it only for a select few? If it’s for all, how do I get it? Can I put myself in a creative state? How do I do this? What would I do with this creativity? Where do I apply it? What are the “right” activities for me? Have these “right” activities always been the same? What skills should I be practicing?

These are some of the questions we ask ourselves when it comes to creativity. In this class we will answer these questions and more. Through our exploration of quotes on creativity from some of the world’s great minds, we will learn what it takes to be creative. We will also delve deep within ourselves to uncover our own creativity and encourage it to emerge and blossom. An open, friendly discussion.
