MORE ABOUT THIS FORUM:
As adults we sometimes downplay thinking and having a childlike mind or entering a state of returning to our inner child. What can children or remembering our inner child teach us? This session explores tapping into our inner children through re-enchantment with the everyday items that surround us. How can the items in our everyday life be used as a gateway to play and our inner child as we unzip our creativity? We will explore all of the ways we can think outside of the box of adulthood, gain lessons from re-engaging with our inner child as a part of the creative process for creativity.
