What You'll Get

The Creativity Workshop in New York City will help you become more creative in your personal and professional life. We use many techniques in creative writing memoir, art, photography, storytelling, mapmaking, mindfulness and guided visualization to help you explore your inner creativity.

The Creativity Workshop is an experiential course of doing and experimenting. Our exercises and instructors’ talks focus on helping you learn practical techniques to stimulate your imagination and innovative thinking.

  • Explore the process of creativity, rather than simply focusing on the product.
  • Discover how to find inspiration in the world around you.
  • Get over creative blocks and the fear of failure.
  • Work with many different mediums to develop your creativity in your chosen field.
  • Use your memories to trigger your imagination.
  • Engage your curiosity every day and make it work for you.
  • Establish a 15 minute a day creativity practice to accomplish your goals after the Workshop ends.

Why New York City?

Famous for its museums, cultural life, shopping, and restaurants, New York City is a great place to recharge your batteries and find inspiration.

  • Whether you want to visit art galleries, go to a dance performance, see a Broadway show, browse through one-of-a-kind shops, explore different neighborhoods, or simply people-watch and soak in the city’s unique energy, New York has something for everyone.
  • While the techniques we explore in our workshops will sharpen your appreciation of New York, the sounds and sights of this exhilarating city will also fuel your creativity in class.
