Originality: Strategies for Obstacle Removal
Prepare to think against yourself in this workshop led by Adrienne Leban. Armed with pencils and paper, participants will find their inner creator.
"Some say that originality is impossible,
everything has been done,
there is nothing new under the sun.
I say, not so."
- Adrienne Leban
Originality is possible once we become conscious of the preconceived ideas and beliefs we hold habitually. These ideas function as the subliminal constraints for most of what we see, think, and do. Yet, without bringing them to awareness, we can only reproduce them endlessly, with minor variations. Adrienne calls this mental status quo the Prison of the Preconceived Idea—the antithesis of an incubator for fresh thinking.
About Adrienne Leban:
Adrienne Leban has taught her Originality course at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, for almost four decades. Her former students include creative directors of major advertising agencies, many entrepreneurs, acclaimed painters and designers, teachers, animators, musicians, web designers/programmers, the creator of the syndicated cartoon strip Mutts, a venture capitalist, a chef, inventors, as well as a few who have their own television programs.
Adrienne is the founder/creative director of The Lifework Studio, through which she does fine art and design, public interest communications, and creativity publications. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums, seen in major magazines and books, and is in private collections and the Library of Congress Permanent Poster Collection, and the Word and Image Collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
