THE LABYRINTH AND THE CREATIVE SPIRIT
The labyrinth and the creative process go hand in hand. In this interactive workshop, we will first take the time to define the four steps of the creative process: Preparation, Incubation, Illumination, and Implementation. Then we will make these steps OUR steps – literally our footsteps as we walk the labyrinth.
Students taking this workshop are encouraged to have an interest in the arts, particularly visual art or the literary arts. You do not have to have a specific project in mind – the labyrinth will take care of that for you. Please don’t feel that you already have to be an artist or writer to do this – anyone with an interest is encouraged to join in.
After the discussion of the creative process, we will all walk the labyrinth (as weather permits). Upon reaching the center of the labyrinth, participants will jot down notes or sketches of the images and thoughts they had on the spiral in. If there is heavy precipitation, an alternative will be offered.
Upon stepping out of the labyrinth, participants will start to formalize their project – artwork or written work – within the time allotted.
All participants will leave the workshop with a project well underway – and helped on its way by turning our footsteps into the steps of the creative process.
