Fall Imaginariums to Unleash Creative Genius

Creativity, in the fabric of humanity, is wild and untamed, quiet and subtle, quirky and mysterious. More than ideas and brainstorming, creative thinking has given us the modern world. And the consistent practice of creativity cultivates a confidence unparalleled to other learning experiences.

A year ago, I launched what I called my "Year of Creative Confidence." Not exactly sure what would transpire, I set forth on a journey to discover all that encompasses creative practice. From design thinking to cognitive flexibility to what fires the imagination, I researched and explored what it meant to engage and train the mind, heart, and hands for creative process and creative product. Well...here we are, 12 months later and the year is complete and with it, over 300 pages of creative practice designed for K-12 students (well...really anyone) for developing skills such as ideation, visualization, complex thinking, and prototyping.

Fall Imaginariums are collections of learning experiences, rooted in research-based creative thinking strategies, design thinking methods, and cognitive flexibility. Each collection is designed for K-12 students AND teachers to engage the imagination, expand creative thinking skills, and build creative confidence.

To access each Imaginarium, click or tap on each title or download attachments below. Available in Apple Pages and PDF, each imaginarium is designed to use as is or remix as needed for individualized learning environment. Yes...go ahead and unleash your creative genius! ❤️

August Imaginarium - The Building One - is focused on skills and behaviors of an entrepreneurial mindset. This includes strategies such as goal-setting, visualization, ideation, reflection, and elaboration.
