Creativity has become a popular topic of discussion and research for scientists, artists, and businesses. Today more than ever we realize the value of creativity in our daily lives. So how do we define creativity? And how do we nurture the creative cycle?

In this class, we will examine two fundamental conditions for a creative life — ritual and curiosity. We will discuss the role of ritual, practice and routine in the creative endeavor as well as the necessity for observation, experimentation and play. Combined, ritual and curiosity intertwine to foster an innovative and lasting approach to a creative life.
