“Creativity is a skill that can be learned, developed and applied” (Edward de Bono), but it may easily become blocked under certain conditions, such as when you're exhausted, stressed out, or experiencing a difficult emotional state and feel stuck in your routine. And at this point, you can experience a creative block. There are methods that can help you stay open to fresh and inventive ideas and be able to accept and use them, or they can simply help you unleash creativity even in these situations. This course will provide you an understanding of what creativity is, how it functions, and ways for getting past your issues with creative blocks. Additionally, it will provide you suggestions on how to occasionally change up your routine. You can utilize these methods to unlock your creativity in many aspects of your life. The course's objective is to arm participants with tools and strategies that encourage creative flow as well as suggestions for how to spice up and diversify their line of work. In order to unlock your own unique creative potential and discover your own method and way of expression, this aims to connect ideas and images through the integration of various disciplines, such as photography, design, writing, performance, film, music, engineering, business, or your own field. It is certain that you will become frustrated, that you will become stuck, and that you will experience times when you lack inspiration. No matter how you may feel, DON'T QUIT. Continue working on it, and occasionally you'll discover that simply finishing a project requires creativity since you have to find creative solutions to your roadblocks. The important key is plan ahead and ALWAYS communicate.
