"Becoming A Creative Mentor"
Visual artist Anne Cubberly often hears the phrase "I'm not creative" from some very creative people. She finds this troubling. Do you?
If so, join us for a rousing conversation over breakfast as we discuss how to become a creative mentor to those around you. A teacher and artist of giant puppets, sculpture and kinetic forms made from recycled material, Anne is a natural at helping others sidestep the belief that people are born with or without an innate sense of creativity. For Anne, creativity is a choice and a practice. As a creative professional, you have an opportunity to help lessen the intimidation factor and help others -- clients, students, colleagues, friends, relatives -- put their inventive selves into play. Anne will share her experiences as a teacher and mentor and is looking forward to hearing how you respond to: "I'm not creative."
