Creative Process


In the creative process, students will learn to Saturate, Incubate, Illuminate and Verify. The first stage, Saturation, refers to the point in research where students learn to gather some information on particular area or theme. During this stage, students learn to gather information through observational studies as well as collection of pictures. The second stage, Incubation, refers to the time during which ideas are mulled over. Here, students would spend time exploring all possible ideas and solutions. The third stage, Illumination, focuses on the sudden solution where ideas are developed and conceptualised. The final stage, Verification, is the act of putting the solution into concrete and tangible form. Students will learn to manipulate media, materials and techniques to communicate their ideas, feelings and visions effectively. In the execution of the final work, students would experiment with varieties of mediums and be exposed to different art forms. At the end of the programme, they would also learn to evaluate, critique and appreciate their own work as well as work of others.
