Once upon a time, you were an artist in all mediums: drawing, storytelling, coloring, music, dancing, singing. Once upon a time, you practiced the human instinct for creativity without self-censorship. In this class, we will practice writing, drawing, and creative collaboration techniques developed by Lynda Barry to explore what she calls the Unthinkable Mind or the Image World. We will practice curiosity over criticism and flow over self-doubt. All writing and drawing abilities are welcome.
