Art Center: Serious Play

art center serious play conference bloggers

I’ll be blogging the “Art Center: Serious Play” Conference with bloggers Katy and Doug throughout the week on their official conference blog here. We’ve also setup a Flickr account for a selection of photos we’ve taken here. Otherwise, the space here in the Wind Tunnel space is amazing, the creative vibe is flaring with a very diverse crowd, and the subject matter of Serious Play will be in question throughout the week!

Some pics and brief descriptions after the jump!

People loosening up by drawing the strangers next to them quickly…. don’t be afraid in getting embarrassed…just do it…adults are afraid to be wrong, and that’s where creativity becomes hindered.
