Starting a new creative project is scary. There is no shortage of excuses (many quite reasonable) as to why you shouldn’t start something today—not enough free time; you haven’t researched it thoroughly, you don’t have time, the new season of Game of Thrones finally came in; you don’t have the right tools, or you can’t afford the right tools. Or, maybe, you don’t have a good enough idea yet. For those brave enough to start there’s another problem: you’re terrible. You might be having fun but you’re frustrated by the fact that you’re not as good as you’d like to be.

In this one-night workshop, students will examine the stumbling blocks in their creative process, identify when and how they work best (and produce their best work), and see how to get their creative methods and beliefs about creativity in alignment with each other.
