THE AMAZING IDEA OF PLAY!
Using Play to Revitalize and Create Work
Picture book author Charlotte Sullivan Wild celebrates the essential role of play in our creative practice. She’ll share how a playful class with author Stephanie Watson inspired her debut picture book, THE AMAZING IDEA OF YOU (illustrated by Mary Lundquist, Bloomsbury 2019). Play can help us to not only generate new material but also problem solve and deepen our work.
Next, roll up your sleeves for serious play time! Mess with old projects in new ways. Create new material that might grow into something… amazing! You’ll learn techniques that use words and lines, pictures and glue–whatever it takes to play your way into new inspiration and insight into your work! You’ll leave with new activities to carry into your creative practice.
