Something from Nothing

A key part of creativity is, being able to see things differently from the normal. In this lesson, you will use the power of imagination to transform simple scribbles into different things.

Lesson 1

The meaning in the scribble

This lesson will give learners new strategies for ideas generation using simple drawing techniques. They will each be asked to observe abstract ‘scribbles’ and see if they can see something more meaningful. Then they will begin to add their own drawings to bring those thoughts to life. Use discussion to see which are the more successful and why.
