As I was reading this, it occurred to me that everyone who wants to find their unique voice should read this book, it has a step by step plan on how to harness and utilize it in your work.
"It takes a trained creative eye to extract and capture the potential in a product of connecting things that don't ordinarily go together that marks out the person who is creative"
Here are some highlights:
**The mind, at its best, is a pattern-making machine, engaged in a perpetual attempt to impose order on to chaos
**making links between disparate entities or ideas in order to better understand either or both
**It is the ability to spot the potential in the product of connecting things that don’t ordinarily go together that marks out the person (or teacher) who is truly creative
**learn how to implement the skill set of creativity through a series of hands-on exercises applicable wherever your creative journey may take you, from the studio to the classroom to the boardroom
