Fall has a focus for getting "back to school" especially for youth and young adults returning to grade school or college. Fall is also a wonderful time for us as creatives to explore how we can learn a new creative skill, launch a new creative endeavor or refresh our current creative practice.
When was the last time you took a studio art class in your area of expertise, explored a new creative practice or learn something totally new? Here's some benefits of taking some workshops or courses for creativity:
What workshops, classes or courses are available in your community that you always wanted to try or explore? Are you interested in honing your writing skills, exploring movement through a dance class, or want to try your hand at learning how to play the piano? Take time to make a list of activites and creative interests that you would like to try and explore what is available in your area. Just about every community offers these educational and professional development opportunities either online or in person at a variety of price points that make it affordable for anyone to participate. Make a plan to sign up for a class, workshop or course for the Fall and watch how your creativity thrives as a result.
