About This Workshop
This fun course presents 50 ways to maintain your creative
edge and keep the artistic juices flowing. We take a look at Leonardo da
Vinci’s methods for developing creative genius, how writer John Steinbeck
utilized journal writing to stay focused on some of his greatest literary
works, the science of where ideas come from, and much, much more.
Participants will take part in activities and discussions and end the course with a list of resources and ideas to keep enthusiasm high and inspiration flowing.
And yes, we will analyze Paul Simon’s song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”
