 Join artist and quilter Ben Hollingsworth for an in-depth look at the creative process and how you can work through creative block.  Ben will start with a discussion of how we think, so that you'll understand where creative solutions to problems, ideas, or designs are born and why both analytical and creative aspects of our brain are required in order to produce good solutions.  Then he'll discuss what characteristics are desirable in creative problem solving and move onto suggestions about how you can become more comfortable with how you work.   He'll also discuss exercises and activities that you can do to break through creative block.  This will be an interactive presentation with lecture, discussion, samples and handouts.

Ben is a retired art teacher who has taught everything from jewelry making to sculpture, printmaking, photography, drawing and painting, and ceramics.  He joined the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guild in Alpharetta in 2006, made a quilt for his first grandson the next year, and the rest, as they say, is history.  He now spends an average of five to six hours a day quilting, planning a quilt design, or doing something related to art.  In addition to membership in the Evening Stars Quilt Guild, Ben is the current President of Fiber Art Fusion, is a member of the East Cobb Quilters Guild (ECQG), and is in charge of hanging over 350 quilts for the ECQG "Georgia Celebrates Quilts" show September 16-18 at the Cobb County Civic Center.
