MAKE 2017

THE YEAR OF YOUR CREATIVE SUPERPOWER

Step out of that tight box and start using all your creative brain potential! Do you know you can train your mind to be more flexible, to better adapt to change, to make new connections and find solutions a lot faster? Exactly as you can train your body to be strong, powerful and flexible, you can train your imagination, your creative power and your ability to share to gain new insights everyday. "Creativity" is not something mysterious that only a few gifted people have. It is the way your mind works!

As a "creative by trade" with more than 20 years of experience, one thing I had to learn fast is how to produce creative solutions everyday, even when I am in the less inspired mood ever (and, yes, there have been plenty of those days!) So, yes, I know how to make my brain work for me to connect the dots in new ways, do my research without being overwhelmed by it, create my own inspiration and get to work everyday with passion. In this program, I put together the latest research in cognitive science and philosophy, with my experience as a designer and artist, and my belief that we learn better when we take action, and things get a bit (or a lot) messy!

And I will not be alone: Special guests will share their knowledge and experience in different fields to bring you fresh perspective and add to the fun.

Join me in my studio for an intensive and life-changing 12 weeks program, packed with fascinating theory, hands-on art and craft exercises, assigments and constant support. Let your brain surprise yourself and you will never say "I am not the creative type" anymore!
