I am fascinated by creativity. You could say it’s my religion. I’m in the process of learning more about creativity and personality, creativity at work, and creativity and life stages. I want to help people become aware of the creative power within them, and to realize that the concept of creativity need not be limited to what we normally think of: the arts. I also want to help people explore the arts in the process of discovery. Everyone can create. If you can breathe, you are a creative person. I’d be interested in particular topics or questions you might bring to such a class if you were to take one.

This is great. I’ve done workshops like this for teenagers. My friends and I have also developed an empowerment group like this for women. Well worth it. We used journals for reflection, had a creative project (different genres/media), discussion, sometimes even projects for home.
A lot of people don’t think they have the right to be creative. Where does that come from? Also, discussing what it is they have to say is important. What are the issues that are important to them.
This is a wonderful goal
I agree about people feeling they lack the right to be creative. Perhaps a lot of people feel they know someone who is so creative that the domain of creativity had best be left to them! But I agree with you that every living breathing human can tap into this energy. One of the things that interests me is the difference between being inspired and motivated by the creativity of others vs. the feeling that one had better get back to one’s day job having seent the competition. The former feeling is so energising and life-affirming, and the latter so incredibly negative. I wish I could attend your class!
