This hands-on workshop explores concepts of divergent thinking, multiple intelligences and inquiry. Through art, play and interactive exercises, participants will tap into their innate creative potential and discover that creativity is a muscle that needs to be exercised. Participants will walk away with increased creative confidence as well as practical ideas and tools to apply to their professional and personal lives.
The Creative Process
Graham Wallas, an English social psychologist and London School of Economics co-founder, developed this insightful theory
in 1926, outlining the four stages of the creative process:
- Preparation: Research, planning and entering into the right frame of mind.
- Incubation: A period of unconscious processing spent either in conscious mental work on other problems, or in a relaxation from all conscious mental work.
- Illumination: That flash of insight where things click together and connections happen.
- Verification: Testing the validity of the idea and deducing next steps.
It is important to note that the creative process is a cycle and each stage does not exist in isolation from the rest.
