Developing your Creativity: An inspiring 5-week course Tuesdays 15 Aug-12 Sept

Do you want to learn more about the creative thinking process? Are you seeking inspiration and ideas to push your projects further? And do you miss connecting face-to-face with people who share similar interests?

This course on Creativity is for everyone who is interested in the process of creative thinking. Whether you enjoy drawing, writing, painting, designing or illustrating, the classes will enable you to cultivate your creative energy by engaging with a diversity of references to the arts, culture and wider societal developments. During the 5-week course you will:

  • develop a creative notebook to explore your ideas further and to turn them into proper projects
  • learn about Creativity through theories on creative thinking and through the practice of contemporary artists
  • get inspired by the books brought to each class, full of ideas and examples (you will be encouraged to read more as books open your eyes and mind!)
  • engage in critical discussions and visualisation exercises to explore various concepts and perspectives
  • feel motivated to dedicate more time to immerse yourself in your creative projects
  • be encouraged to visit exhibitions and other cultural events with the group
  • and collaborate with an international group of like-minded people (high chance of new friendships!) with whom you can easily stay in touch through the Visual Agency Community on Facebook - a closed group for all previous participants to continue sharing ideas.
