Class Experience

- Students will practice approaches for coming up with unique and useful ideas using logical reasoning and brainstorming
I have formally and informally studied creativity, both in my master's degree and in my professional work with incredibly creative individuals. I was also a full-time songwriter for many years and a guitar teacher for 10 years. In addition, I have extensive experience working with Davidson Young Scholars in the profoundly gifted population and with learners who identify as twice-exceptional.

Homework for this class is optional. Students wishing to take the 10 exercises further (beyond the 5 minutes given during class) can certainly elaborate on the activities. Also, at the end of class, I will explain three additional activities students could do on their own time. These include doodling big outside the lines (outside with chalk), drawing a timeline of their life, and sketching pareidolia (things that aren't there but our imaginations fill them in - like finding a new constellation in the night sky).
Bring a pencil, paper, a picture of yourself (or a mirror or smartphone). In addition, learners will want a red, green, blue, purple, yellow, and black crayon or colored pencil.
Informal assessment will take place in this class while sharing ideas and quick creations. I encourage students to take screenshots of my slides (shift, command, 4) in order to take notes they can use later on their own. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
