Kickstart your Creativity course outline
This course is aimed at anyone who wants to explore their creativity, feels blocked, uninspired or wants to get excited, motivated, and discover a sense of playfulness. We will look at the nuts and bolts of creativity, ways to stimulate it, environments which support and block it; how to nurture our inventive and resourceful selves to manage the ruts and bumps, and ways to cultivate the creative habit.
By the end of this course:
- You will learn ways to inspire and energise your thinking
- Recognise what helps and hinders your creativity
- Learn ways to keep yourself motivated and going
- Feel clearer and more confident about your creative abilities
What is creativity? We look at models of practice and what they teach us about the process. We focus on what it means to you: the benefits of approaching life creatively, ways to get the juices flowing and develop your creative confidence. We introduce your creative tool-kit.
