Innovation is a big deal. Creativity is a driver of innovation. As demand for ideas and experiences which reveal new ways of seeing and interacting with the world increases, how will you or your business continue to be awesome?
The Awesome School is a 3-session, interactive, group learning experience where digital media and contemporary art will help you keep your innovation mojo from going limp.

*It is recommended that students also pursue independent studies in courage and heart. Ruby slippers are optional.

The featured artist for February 18 is Elastic City, which encourages poetic exchanges with the everyday places we live in and visit. To learn more about Elastic City, please click here.
