I had the opportunity to teach marbling and creative writing workshops this past weekend at the ISAS Art Festival, hosted by Casady. Three thousand art students from 50 schools in five states attended the event. The marbling workshops filled to double capacity 30 minutes before they started. The students loved marbling so much, that many plan to start marbling clubs back at their schools! Although my writing workshops on boosting creativity and spontaneity were smaller, the students produced inventive poems and short stories, and said that the unusual prompts helped them break old writing habits and surprise themselves with their work.
