Take an eloquent ride on the illusive magical mystery tour of your very own illustrious creative spirit. Where does it come from? What exactly is it? Why does it sometimes leave you stranded? What can you do when you lose it? How do you get it back when it jumps ship? Can schools kill creativity? Do workshops work?
For two warming evenings in chilly December, join award-winning author, artist, and educator Keith Carter for a wholly original, singular tour of the misunderstood nature of creativity. Our time together explores and reveals individual strategies to both strengthen, redefine, or perhaps get your MOJO workin’ again. Keith shares images, his own as well as those from other artists that intrigue him, tells stories and a few tall tales, and takes on the sometimes complicated yet always fascinating nature of the creative process. Question and answer sessions bring each evening to an enjoyable close.
Join Keith on an illustrative journey towards a better understanding of the creative spirit.
Open to anyone interested in this special program.
