Registration Open for Inspiration Cards

Inspiration Cards flyerInspiration Cards: Creatively Unblocking
Monday, Sept 22, 6 – 8pm
Ticket Price: $50

What do William Burroughs, Brian Eno and David Bowie have in common? They have all developed strategies to introduce unexpected elements into their work. Unpredictable input becomes inspiration, side-stepping any creative blocks the artist might have….

In my visual art, I use a similar technique I call Inspiration Cards. With my deck of custom-made cards, I constantly generate new combinations of inspiring elements. The artistic goals I am given are always a surprise!

In this workshop, students will first experiment with my deck. We will then spend time making our own Inspiration Cards. Everything you need is provided. Students will practice working from their own decks, and we will take our decks home for future use.

  1. Dean, this looks a brilliant idea, wish I could be there for the class! The cards look such a simple but powerful tool to unlock creativity and the design on the back is awesome, so strong. I always admire your creative flow, productivity and how alive your work looks; this kind of exercise seems like it would prompt all kinds of fascinating avenues for work.

    • Phil, thanks for the great comment, which itself is a form of inspiration for me! Yes, these cards have gotten me through a number of jams…. I’m hoping they can do the same for others.
