Spirituality, Science, and the Creative Process 2011


Spirituality, Science, and the Creative Process


Season’s greetings! Mid-December, my endless summer of rest and renewal is finally drawing to a close… My sincere thanks to all of you who’ve kept in touch during my time away. Fully re-energized, I’m thrilled to share with you that in February 2011 I’ll be back teaching Spirituality, Science, and the Creative Process at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. The course is presented by their Continuing Education program, so enrollment is open to EVERYONE!

For those of you looking for unique gift ideas this holiday season, the class might make a fantastic Christmas (or belated Chanukah) present!

Here’s a course description, new and improved since its maiden voyage last year:

Great ideas inspire enduring art. This course explores grand themes shared by spiritual philosophy and cutting-edge science, using them as source material for artistic creativity. Examining energy, duality, infinity, chaos, evolution, and actualization, students will consider how these and other spiritual and scientific themes are mirrored in their own creative process, inspiring resonant artwork in any medium. Voluntary creative prompts will challenge student artists to depict entanglement, emergence, and higher and fractal dimensions. And in-class journaling assignments will require students to reflect on their own creativity, encouraging mastery of process as well as practice.

The course runs 10 weeks, Saturday mornings, and will include and expand upon all your favorite poetic interconnections among spirituality, science, and creativity. My students last year produced amazing artwork—visual, musical, and literary—based on class sessions. And as their teacher, I was equally inspired, their comments and reflections becoming part of this year’s curriculum (an evolution happily in progress).

So… Here’s a link to enroll in the class:


I’m looking forward to seeing you there! And meantime, happiest of holidays to you and yours.

    Happiest Ho Ho Adam,

    Now that’s a great christmas present! It’s delightful to hear that Otis appreciates the spirit & creativity that you joyously share with your students.

    I also wanted to let you know that I did not die… life & g-kids just got in the way of business. I’m now at it again and will keep you posted.

    be happy… ken

      Thank you, Ken, as always, for your good wishes and compliments.

      Very glad you didn’t die! Life getting in the way of business isn’t such a bad thing. Definitely keep me posted when you’re back to work; perhaps we can still rendezvous.

      Happy New Year!
