Creative Revolution e-course

I have been lucky enough to be granted a scholarship for Flora Bowley’s creative revolution e-course.
This means I’m embarking in a seven weeks of creative, intuitive and completely new art-venture. I’m a little bit fidgety right now I must admit.

The course is designed to help its students develop their creativity via a series of creative exercises, meditations and yoga exercises.

It has started on June 5th and so far I’ve tried two exercises : Visual Riffing and Watercolor meditation.

I never really thought this kind of simple exercises would unlock so many things in me but Visual Riffing did.

New forms and patterns showed up in my grid at my first attempt and I’m really happy about it. A rooster showed up in my grid with a circle, a brick wall and a poppy made their way in my grid with a triangle.

My 4 year old daughter also tried the visual riffing exercise and she was absolutely delighted about it. She first treated it like a coloring page but could not resist the temptation to work according to her own imagination.

Since I decided to complete my creative journey with drawing and painting courses, I have gone in a lot of directions, looking for my ‘style’, my voice and I feel this course is going to help me think less and let my intuition lead the way.

❤ always.

 

Inspiration exists but it has to find you at work.

Nourrir son inspiration : prendre des exemples concrets et les sortir de leur contexte

Pendant les vacances, je me suis aperçue qu’un petit peu de gymnastique intellectuelle quotidienne me permettait de trouver des idées d’histoires ou de personnages bien plus facilement qu’au cours d’une séance de brainstorming ad hoc.

La méthode que j’ai utilisée est un mélange entre une idée personnelle (sortir des choses de leur contexte) et une technique lue et relue dans de nombreux ouvrages sur l’écriture et l’inspiration, à savoir se demander “Et si”.

Dans les faits, il s’agit de noter les choses, qui sorties de leur contexte, adopteraient un sens totalement différent. Je ne suis pas en train de les imaginer ou de les fabriquer de toutes pièces, je me contente juste d’observer ce qui m’entoure.

Je vous propose deux exemples pour illustrer mon propos.
