Materials for drawing exercises supplied by Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer
What is creativity? Where does your imagination come from?
In this workshop you will have an opportunity to get your hands dirty. You will work through a series of exercises designed to remind your body and your mind how to play. You will draw and doodle (play!) your way toward story. Mess around! Stop thinking and start doing! Let’s see to which story YOUR hands take you!
“This course comprises a series of writing and drawing exercises that will open you up to the particular story each of you has ready to tell right now. Story happens as you make it happen. I want to show my students that they are endlessly creative all the time. That creativity belongs to everyone.”
