One of Blue Zoo Creative’s co-owners, Eric Huber, will be teaching a class at the New Design School in Fayetteville this fall. It will be the fourth year instructing the class which focuses on defining a person’s creative process.
But it’s not limited to those seeking a career in Graphic Design.
“If you’re a creative person, whether in commercial arts or fine arts, you probably have ‘blocks’ that keep you from doing the creative work you know you’re capable of producing,” Huber says. “This course will help you break those ‘blocks’ and open yourself to all new possibilities.”
Below is the course description and other information.
Seating is limited! Class starts August 24th at 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm (Wednesdays).
The goal of Creative Identity 1 is to Identify and define your personal creative process. This will be done through journaling, learning to maintain an active sketchbook, and identifying other means of documenting creative thought and inspiration. By the end of the 12 weeks, you will have learned how to question and break old beliefs and gain self-confidence in your creative identity.
This class will utilize in-class instruction, video presentations, class discussion, and student presentations as well as out-of-class readings, journaling, research and writing assignments.
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Readings will be handed out throughout the semester and must be read by the dates specified. Texts will include, but not be exclusive to, The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Other readings will be suggested and/or reviewed in class.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Creativity Identity I is a 12 session course designed:
- To provide approaches to accessing creativity.
- To place these findings in the context of their own stories and voice.
- To develop habits which can be used to access and create effective and communicative design.
- To examine current work habits and learn how to channel these more directly toward the creation of art.
- To provide an academically challenging experience which also inspires creativity.
Grades will be based on class participation, attendance, and homework.
It is assumed you start with an “A” in this class.
Where you go from there is completely up to you.
