I'm proud to announce the "Art Factory" workshop at the Juan de Fuca festival. This workshop was developed as a way to introduce people to the artistic process which is different from the typical "How to make a _______ just like this!" Creativity is a process of solving problem and alternating between being the different roles of the creative process: Explorer, Artist, Judge and Warrior (adopted from the "Whack on the Side of the Head" book by Roger Von Oech). Understanding the creative process and how artists come up with creative solutions can be a key to finding solutions that were previously insurmountable.
