About This Class


If you are curious how an ancient poem and creative writing helped Einstein in one of history’s greatest scientific discoveries, you are in it for a treat!


This is a time-travel experience of the bewitching adventure the creative process entails. It sets out to explore different notions of creativity аnd practices used by some of history’s best-known names. From ancient poets and philosophers to painters and modern-day professors, we will dissect perspectives and put them into practice.


The class rests upon the eternity of past knowledge but in its core is change. It is suitable for both beginner and well-seasoned authors who want to sharpen their understandings.
