Discover creativity in yourself. You are happy when creating! 
Instructor Urve Küttner

Creativity is not a special talent, but way of life. It is an ability to get out of the routine of fallbacks. Creativity is an ability to operate in new way in common situations and adapt to new situations. (Esa Saarinen) The objective is development of spatial thinking and subsistence. In practice, this broadens the perception of geometry and design skills of real space. From the standpoint of creativity, this is release of inner energy. For a person committed to activity – purification of mind and path to intellectual awakening, possibility for reaching balance.
