Thinking Outside the Box @ Ocean City Center for the Arts
12:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Day after day we do the same things in the same order with the same people. A little mix up of that routine is the extent of our excitement. Faced with a problem solving moment, our creativity is suddenly asked to perform… But where is it?! It’s out of practice, sitting on the couch watching reruns in its pajamas. In this workshop, we’ll send that creativity segment of our brains to boot camp by asking it to rethink, relook, and reorient to everyday objects, activities, and actions. Using creativity more often strengthens our ability to call it to action when we need it.
