Creativity Workshop

Working with the Tools of Creative Writing, Memoir, Art, Photography and Storytelling.
The Creativity Workshop teaches individuals in all disciplines ways to develop their unique creativity and use it in their lives and work. The Creativity Workshop achieves this through a specially designed series of techniques in creative writing, memoir, free-form drawing, collage, and storytelling. The Workshop helps its participants to: tap into their innate creativity, get over creative blocks, use memories to spark the imagination, and develop a daily practice to accomplish these goals.
Since 1993 The Creativity Workshop has brought together people from all professions, ages, and nations. What Creativity Workshop participants all have in common is an interest in the creative process, a spirit of curiosity, and the desire to explore and harness the power of their imaginations.

Creativity Workshop is based in New York, NY, USA
We started the workshop in 1993 after many years of teaching in a traditional University setting. We felt there were a lot of programs that taught techniques of creative expression, but very few that focused on the creative process itself. We decided to provide a workshop that spoke to that neglected area. From our experience as educators, thinkers, and artists we developed a unique series of exercises dedicated to inspiring and keeping alive the life of the imagination.
We teach from the point of view that people are by nature creative and that creativity, like DNA, is unique in each individual. To access and develop creativity, our workshops use exercises in: sense perception, free form writing and drawing, associative thinking, map-making, constructive daydreaming, and sensitivity to our environment.
Workshop tools are simple: pad, paper, and you Requirements are curiosity and a desire to explore the creative abilities. We also work with learning to recognize and trust your imagination's instincts, trusting your process, combating debilitating self-criticism and the fear of failure that lead to creative blocks.
Our exercises are broad paradigms that each participant can easily tailor to her/ his own goals, whether it be a particular specialty or life in general.
We believe that creativity is best served in a playful, nurturing, and non-competitive environment where freedom and focus go hand in hand. We concentrate on creative process rather than product and on the idea of creativity as a way of viewing and appreciating life.
We designed the workshop to help you: find new sources of inspiration, break through creative blocks, take pleasure in your imagination, discover images from your unconscious, give yourself the permission, time, and encouragement to do creative work, and develop a daily practice to accomplish these goals.
And, most important of all, like the imagination itself, the Creativity Workshop is fun.
