Blending the Physical & the Digital World
Nowadays, more and more creatives tend to follow the same design techniques, starting and finishing their work in front of their computer. Ignoring all the inspiration from the physical world that could be creatively implemented to the digital one. In this workshop participants will be invited to explore the possibilities of blending the physical and the digital world, exploring new areas and come up with unique design solutions. Everything around us can be inspirational and an object for investigation. This workshop's aim is to help the participants find new sources of inspiration, experiment and explore new areas of design by blending the physical and the digital world, learn new skills and techniques, and broaden their creative thinking.

Blind Contour Drawing with Joseph "JD" Green of Creativity Explored
Creativity Explored artist Joseph “JD” Green will lead blind contour drawing exercises that explore the process of seeing and creating. Green’s session is inspired by his own figure-drawing practice and an interactive pedagogy he developed to lead community art sessions for LinkedIn, Twitter Design, and the DeYoung Museum. No experience required! Participants should have a writing utensil and a paper to draw on. Green will be joined by CE teaching artist Enrique Quintero.
Even though it can seem that we are more connected than ever through social media and video calls, most online interactions can feel transactional and goal-oriented leaving little room for casual connection and intimacy. This workshop will recreate the opportunity to connect with a stranger on a personal level as a way to get back in touch with our humanity. It is meant to be easy, fun, and carefree—no preparation required! Materials needed: Paper, bold writing utensil, camera phone, access to internet.
