Workshop: Creative Thinking
Saturday, March 12, Studio Light House was filled with photographers who have attended a training for Creative Thinking organized by ErKE . The training was presented with professionalism and humor by Ilona Benko (Ili), master's degree in Psychology. During the eight hours of training Ili took us through the labyrinth of thought, and showed us how the mechanisms of creative thinking works, and in the end it was proved that anyone can be creative if he/she overcomes the convenience and starts practicing some simple but effective techniques.
Anti-inhibition and self-knowledge games, exercises for thinking creatively, brainstorming,video screenings, competitions between teams, all these kept us involved and curious, stimulated our creative thinking and motivated us to use those learned in the future. As an assessment of the training, we proposed the resumption of the theme 'Candle'. This way we’ll have the opportunity to compare results before and after training for creativity.
The opinions of the participants:
I want to thank you for the opportunity offered by this training, I liked it very much. As I said Saturday, I did not expect anything but 8 hours of sitting, but fortunately was much more than that: quality information, interaction through games, an excellent trainer, and of course lots of fun. It was great :)
Looking forward for the next training!
With love, Liana G.
I'm glad I could participate in the training of creative thinking. It was pleasant and interesting. It stimulated me to free my imagination for future ideas. Even during the course I thought at 2-3 ways of achieving the photo for the next contest.
The trainer was well prepared with photo-video examples, links, exercises ... etc.. We did brainstorming and imagination exercises, we discussed the process of creation, emotions, map of ideas, the principles of creative people.
I also felt very well in the company of my colleagues from ErKE ... (of which some I saw for the first time).
Thank you for the initiative to support such training. Congratulations!
I look forward to seeing the photos that will participate in the 'creative candle.'
First I would like to thank Carmen and Sooska for their enthusiasm and dedication in the organization of various creative activities by which we refine our personality and skills.
The training was very successful indeed, which, despite the fact that it took 8 hours, Ili managed to keep our attention and involve us in games and dialogues. It was a relaxed atmosphere, playful, and yet the subject was treated with the utmost seriousness. Ili was able to lead the training step by step, without skipping steps, giving proof of such total commitment and desire to 'give' us something that will really stay with us.
Thanks again for the opportunity to participate in such training, Thanks to Ili for her professionalism and last but not least, because I cannot express my admiration and respect for Sooska and Carmen aka Alejandro and Lady Gaga, because they always put so much soul in what they do.
