Creative Idea Generator

with Karen O’Brien

Saturday, Feb 2

10:30 am – 1 pm

Play generates ideas and constraints make things interesting. They send you in new directions and bypass inhibitions. The assignment is to make a figure. Any kind of figure. Or more than one! The more you do, the more ideas you will generate for bigger projects like dolls, drawings, paintings, and sculpture. This is a chance to engage deeply and freely with your imagination and embrace real play.
All materials will be provided. We will use paper, cardboard, fabric, sticks, moss, feathers, buttons, metal, wood…basically whatever is around including tools – glue sticks, tape, paint, thread, string…. You are welcome to bring a Ziploc bag full of your own bits to use or share and add a nice element of surprise.
