Workshop on Creative thinking [13-14] WIS,Malad

Creative Design Workshop

 “Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found." James Russell Lowell


Witty International School always strives towards developing critical thinking and creativity amongst its students. All efforts are made at WIS to enthuse and encourage students at building good decision-making strategies and promote a sense of teamwork and cooperation, moreover, by coming together as a community of life-long learners. Such a holistic approach does not only help the students give their best in all spheres of academic life but also when given enough opportunity by way of activities it only serves as a platform for the students to unleash their immeasurable talent and creativity.

As a conscious effort towards this goal, Witty International School, invited The Raffles Design International Mumbai to conduct a ‘Creative thinking Workshop’ with the students of IGCSE I to A Level, giving the students an opportunity to explore their creativity and to build awareness towards a vocation in creative design.

This workshop conducted by the Raffles Design International Mumbai was without doubt a fun and interactive one. The members of the team leading the workshop were experienced professionals from the design industry and part of the school’s international faculty. The workshop had many team-driven activities for the students which were innovative, play way, fun and thought provoking. Raffles Design stood by their mantra at every aspect of the workshop, “SEEING what everyone else has seen, THINKING what no one else has thought, & DOING what no one else has dared!" Through their various fun activities they encouraged the students in thinking creatively and independently such that they can learn by discovering themselves, be open to new ideas and be keen to work with others to explore ideas. Some of the highlights were Illustrations’ of lateral thinking, Basic principles of Creativity & Design, Design process and some practical exercises for out-of-box thinking.

All-in-all the workshop was time worthwhile and an invaluable experience for the students. The workshop was a step closer towards understanding the different arenas of creative design such as graphic design, multimedia design, fashion design, interior design, product design and fashion marketing. This workshop will go a long way not only as an innovative experience for the students but perhaps for some students to understand and make an informed career choice.

“The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas."— Dr. Linus Pauling.
