Imagination and the Creative Process: Structure, Form, Improvisation and Practice. Or, How Much is Two Plus Two?

April 25th, 2018 from 5:30-7pm

in the Center for Transformation, Lamson Library, room 003

A presentation on the stages of the creative process, the importance of engaging in the creative process and the transformative nature of understanding and engaging in the creative process.

Jay Moskowitz, PSU faculty member, will provide a talk and follow-up activity which will explore the stages and value of the creative process. He will demystify “making art”, present it in the context of engaging in the creative process and argue that anyone can be creative; creativity is an essential element for growth and progress in all academic disciplines and life experiences. Join us as we explore and engage in an event which asks us to reconsider the question, How Much is Two Plus Two? “Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.”-Erich Fromm

Jay Moskowitz, Musician Artist Educator

“Whoever uses the spirit that is in him creatively is an artist. To make living itself an art, that is the goal.”
― Henry Miller

In order to be successful, one must pay attention, have patience and practice. Or, is it that life is a metaphor for art?”
