Ever feel like this whole “tapping into the creative process” endeavor feels more like a long, slow slog on the struggle bus? Yup — we’re right there with you. We know what it’s like to have the sparkle in our eyes — only to be dimmed by the inner critic we harbor just under the surface.

Time to get on with it.

During this session, these creatives will talk about their deep dives into their individual and collaborative process projects — Color! Flowers! Doodles! A Prompt Party! They’ll also share with you what they've tried, what has moved them, what they had to let go of and what they hope to continue to do. Note to attendees: A good portion of this session will be about doing / making. We anticipate this session to be very chill, very fun and very much hands-on. No judgment whatsoever. (See  @qme_creative  on Instagram to check out their collaborative prompt project.)

@qme_creative is Sarah Quinn, Suzette Moyer and Julie Elman.
