CREATIVE LETTERPRESS : Resolution #1 : Declaration of Acceptance workshop

WE JUST THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE FUN, so we decided to give it a try and for half price.

  • Cost : $60 per person
  • AGE : 15 or better
  • TIME : 7 hours.
  • ALL MATERIALS, lunch and light snacks included.

PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ the description of our Holiday Card workshop before registering.

When Ray was teaching University-level design courses in creative thinking, a book he loved for a textbook was The Universal Traveler. It broke creative problem-solving into 7 stages. The first stage was ACCEPTANCE — understanding and accepting the need for a solution.  Most people do this start-up stage really poorly.

Declaration of Acceptance is one of 15 or so strategies explained in the book for successfully following through on stage 1. It instructs you to seriously declare your intentions to a person or persons whom would be significantly disappointed if you didn't follow through to give you an extra push to jump off the high board into the pool. Let's make a typographic postcard you can send to friends as your personal "Declaration of Acceptance" to start 2018 off with a billboard-sized bang.

I'm not exactly sure what we from Lead Graffiti will declare, but we'll do one for us with you,

  • we'll work to make our card loud,
  • we'll sign our names on our card nice and big,
  • we'll put a stamp on our card, and
  • we'll take our card to the Post Office and mail to at least 40 people. 

We hope you'll do the same.

TO CANCEL, text to 302.547.6930 or email at least 24 hours in advance.
