Have you ever felt an overwhelming buildup of creative thoughts and ideas? Have you always wondered how you can simply declutter your mind and spill these ideas out? One efficient and effective practice for releasing all of the contents of your artistic mind is a brain dump

In this fun online workshop, you will learn how to unravel your thoughts: artistic ideas, potential projects, personal tasks, memories, and more – and collect them onto the page in collage-like form. Through timed, prompted exercises, you will be encouraged to quickly draw, write, and build a mini body of pieces that will act as a portfolio of opportunities to move forward with. You will also learn to become more aware of how to creatively release, organize, and act to achieve new goals and projects.  

At the end of the workshop, you will have achieved a brain dump, and you’ll be ready to push your creativity in new directions – or fill your mind with fresh ideas with a plan for how to make them a reality!
