Everyone has a story to tell. We go to the supermarket and come home with a desire to tell the tale of the woman with a shopping cart full of cake. We wake up bursting with the details of the strange dream we just had. The craving for great storytelling is in our DNA. By combining writing prompts, lectures on great character writing, goal setting and in-class feedback, this course will focus the student’s writing towards the creation or completion of a story, play or screenplay.

Flash Perception Lab is a series of adventures designed to accelerate your awareness and refine your technical skills for expressing ideas in writing, drawing and photography. You will actively make notes and art during each of these creativity classes. The point is to start from the idea. Then instead of teaching how to use “just one” art medium, you will learn how to use all available tools and technologies to give voice to your vision. Experience how Ms. Rosenberg innovated a career translating words into pictures, pictures into words, observations into insights, and love into understanding. Her technical expertise as an award-winning photographer, cartoonist, writer, animator and comic performer will inspire you to snare and share your own wonderfully-warped world view. A pen, notebook, pocket camera (or smart phone), and a spirited appetite for intelligent fun required. If you can make a sandwich with more than one ingredient, you have enough creative, associative ability to take these creativity classes. EARLY BIRD PRICE: $90 by October 22nd, 2014 Dates & Time: 3 Wednesdays, November 5th, 12th, and 19th, 6:30pm-9pm
