What will I learn?


Turn your ideas upside down, inside out, and anti-gravity. Exponential ideation for brilliantly fresh ideas and getting unstuck.

Join us at the art museum in this play-meets- art-meets- ideation pop-out, where you’ll learn new tools for multiplying ideation.

This pop-out, focused on fresh ideation techniques, will equip your design thinking toolbox with art tools to breathe fresh life into your concepts and expand on traditional brainstorming.

Develop distinct perspectives on ideation by immersing in an intensive series of arts-based play, empathy, translation, and composition activities.
