Think Like An Artist: Creativity, Curiosity & Courage

Disrupt your status quo. Challenge assumptions. Embrace uncertainty. Stand with us on unfamiliar ground with unfamiliar materials and activities. Innovation Institute's 2-day “Think Like An Artist” program helps you fulfill your creative capacity, unleash your curiosity, and summon the courage to act on your ideas.

On the first day of your experience, the Innovation Institute activates your capacity to be creative as you are guided through a series of individual and collaborative exercises. During this session, you will face disruptive challenges that require risk-taking and courage to resolve, helping you to see possibility in otherwise overlooked places.

Building on the momentum of the first day, the journey continues inward the following day to explore your own personal resources. Inquire within to see what leads or inhibits your creativity by questioning personal assumptions, rules, and beliefs.

What Happens in the Experience?

An accomplished artist presents their work and describes the methods of their personal creative process. Then, you will be guided through a series of hands-on activities. The experience is designed to immerse you in your own creative process, revealing what constrains and propels your creativity. Our expert facilitator will lead discussions that will deepen your understanding of creative principles and practices, and “connect the dots” between the exercises and the relevance to your work and life.

To kick-off your Innovation Institute experience, your facilitator will schedule a one-on-one phone call prior to your session. The conversation will help identify your personal learning objectives and jump-start your thinking about how and where you can apply what you learn. An optional 30-minute post-session call with the facilitator is also included in the program.

We are ready, are you?
