Think like an Artist
Remote learning | For our partners' teams

In this enlightening and interactive session, we'll explore how art can enrich our work and life, rediscovering our inner artist and and learn tools to apply to all kinds of contexts.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." 
Pablo Picasso 

---

The notion of an Artist has many stereotypes from 'creative genius' to 'tortured soul' and although many of us might greatly appreciate, and even dabble in making art — whether painting, music, writing or origami, we rarely have the opportunity to reflect on the creative process and how it might enrich other parts of our life and work.

We may have set-out to be an artist, but found ourselves constrained by the realities of making our way in the world and let our creative dreams go. Or perhaps we have the opinion, passed from a well-meaning parent or teacher, that we are not creative. At YCN we believe that everyone is creative. 

Join us online in this ninety minute workshop to explore the work and creative process of some well known (and not so obvious) artists, and discover tools to support you in recovering your creativity and applying it to all kinds of challenges and opportunities. 

What we'll cover

    •    What is art for?
    •    Learning from the masters
    •    The three Ps: Perspective, Process & Practice
    •    Tools and techniques for creative recovery
    •    Shifting towards a mindset of artistry: living a creative life

How this session will be structured
We'll explore some ideas and tools to get inspired and then work through a series of short exercises. Expect an energising mix of individual reflection, group discussion and practical application.

Who is this session for?
Anyone who is interested in exploring what art and the artistic process can offer our life and work.
