• Strategies for the Creative Process: Final Projects

This intensive studio class focused on creative thinking as a critical response to the world around us, our own interests, to help us frame and address problems we see in the world.

Course taught by Ian Gonsher.     •    Fall 2011

Starting from the assumption that there is no single strategy for creative thinking, this class, lead by Ian Gonsher, pushed students to work as artists/designers. Developing an object-based studio environment, students examined various approaches to refining of creative processes. Topics like visual literacy, design thinking, creative collaboration, exploratory play, divergent and convergent thinking, iteration, ideation, woodworking, drawing, and other technical and abstract approaches were all addressed. Ultimately, the class established both technical and conceptual foundations for the design and fabrication of objects and experiences.
