Learn creative ways to record and re-use the details of your life! This 3-hour generative class covers the basics of creative observation by teaching you concrete methods used by writers and artists to refresh their focus, maintain their attention to detail, and see the world in new ways. The practice of creative journaling allows you to gather detailed, raw data from daily life that makes your written and verbal expression more compelling. Refresh your awareness of the world around you through a series of creative journaling exercises that you can repeat on your own at home. The class includes examples, videos, in-class writing activities, discussion, and lecture portions inspired by everything from recent neuroscience research to Monet's creative practice.
