Su Terry's Masterclass is entitled "HOW TO BE "CREATIVE."  
The first principle is that creativity is not a static thing, but a process.
The second principle is that each individual must forge her or his own path to the Creative Source.
A caterpillar cannot borrow another caterpillar's chrysalis!  
This masterclass will explore techniques and exercises designed to make the first two principles accessible for the student.
