New York

Program Overview

  • The Creativity Workshop in New York City will help you become more creative in your personal and professional life. We use many techniques in creative writing, memoir, art, photography, storytelling, mapmaking, and guided visualization to accomplish this.
  • Participants come from many different countries and professional fields, including business, education, psychology, the sciences, and the arts.
  • Many people who have taken the Workshop say that our creativity classes were a transformative experience, helping them to write their books, start new companies,
    complete long overdue projects, transition to rewarding retirements, and change the way they look at life.

 


Program Details

  • All our New York workshops will take place at One Columbus Place, New York, NY 10019, located in Midtown Manhattan from 10 AM to 1 PM each day.

 


Why New York City?

New York

  • Famous for its museums, cultural life, shopping, and restaurants, New York City is a great place to recharge your batteries and find inspiration.
  • Whether you want to visit art galleries, go to a dance performance, see a Broadway show, browse through one-of-a-kind shops, explore different neighborhoods, or simply people-watch and soak in the city’s unique energy, New York has something for everyone.
  • While the techniques we explore in our workshops will sharpen your appreciation of New York, the sounds and sights of this exhilarating city will also fuel your creativity in class.

 


What Will You Learn?

The Creativity Workshop is an experiential course of doing and experimenting. Our exercises and instructors’ talks focus on helping you:

  • Learn practical techniques to stimulate your imagination and innovative thinking.
  • Explore the process of creativity, rather than simply focusing on the product.
  • Discover how to find inspiration in the world around you.
  • Get over creative blocks and the fear of failure.

“Happy to report that I am working hard and productively, and I do credit The Creativity Workshop with helping me turn a corner, so infinite thanks again.”

Ashton Applewhite, author of Cutting Loose and, (as Blanche White), the Truly Tasteless Jokes series, New York, NY

 

“The Creativity Workshop changed me forever and moved me forward in managing my companies. The Creativity Workshop is far above all the other creative seminars I’ve taken
in its inspiration, positive spirit, and techniques for nurturing creativity. This workshop is important for anyone who wants to develop their creativity in their personal or business life.”

Barbara Roberts, CEO (ret), Acoustiguides and FPG. Advisor to The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center of the Columbia Business School, New York City

 

“The Creativity Workshop in New York was so dynamic that the three and a half hours of class time went by like three and a half minutes. I came back home full of energy and ideas. The class set free my creative process, and reminded me not to only look to the final product.”

Lissette Sutton, Author, Mexico City, Mexico
