Respond to every call
there are so many creative people from so many different countries and cultures in my workshop! I've been so busy the last two days, I have not had time to add to my blog.
Yesterday we talked about famous creators in the Creativity Workshop and the importance of creativity to all occupations – science business --any occupation requires flexible thinking order to succeed. We wrote both alone and with partners using imagination. Stretching exercises.
We have had several assignments to carry out during her afternoon, finding objects ,photographing, sketching in coffee shops--things to get us outside our comfort zone and challenging us into more creative thinking. I've discovered so much little gem around Barcelona I would never have found otherwise.
Yesterday my friend Lena, from Jordan, and I walked to port Vell to PortOlumpic from our hotel .The landscape was stunning. I can see where Gaudi he got his inspiration. The port is kind of a peninsula. We walked all around the edge. Bicyclists shared our past with us. The buses and the taxis have a lane of their own as well. We walked back up La Rambla amongsr vendors. We wandered down narrow alleys of ancient amazing architecture to find little shops and churches.
We stopped in Plaza Catayluna when we heard drumming. A group of young drummers was putting on a performance near the fountains. They were wonderful! Went to talk to them after they finished neither of us spoke each other's language but they were so happy to "talk "to me!
Today we visited visited the museum of art. The building itself was huge atop a mountain and overlooked another mountain. I will post pictures below. I can't describe the feeling of being able to see some of the ancient Spanish art and even a Picasso! None of the artwork was covered or fenced. Amazing!
can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
