I'm participating in Jess Greene's "Jump start Your Creativity" online course. http://www.jumpstartcreativitytour.com/
I definitely find, at this point in life,
that I am more likely to spend time creating if I am enrolled in some sort of online art class. A great point of departure. Her first week prompt with "doors". She sent out a pdf with directions for folding an X-book and a sheet with drawings of doors.
I've always loved the metaphor of the "door". Here's where I went with this point of departure. First, I made an x-fold book (look on YouTube) ledger sized, the tiny book was too small for me. Then I drew 8 doors. That's when I realized that these 8 doors where doors that represented OPPORTUNITY to me.
You know that old saying about opportunity knocking? So looking through these open doors I thought about my areas of opportunity that need attention. I used the Drawing with Associations method here to gather association to these collage/drawings. Guess the next step could be an activity that breaks down the steps needed to realize these opportunities.
