Day 15: Mindmap

(uptempo electronic music) This is 28 to Make. I'm Laura McCormick. For this project, we'll be doing a mindmap. What is a mindmap? A mindmap is amazing brainstorming tool. It allows you to visualize your thoughts and ideas. All you need is a pen and paper. You start off by writing the central topic in the middle and circling it, and then you branch out to related words and ideas, and from there, you can keep branching out until your page fills up. Here's one that I did around planning a vacation. Now, you can do it in any size. This is just letter size. So I know I wanted to go on a fun trip, and I branched out to all the things that planning a vacation entails, like do I wanna plan it, do I not wanna plan it and go rogue, do I wanna think up about finances, do I wanna go cheap or expensive, how long do I wanna go, where do I wanna go, and you can also see there's dotted lines between relationships, and patterns start to emerge. Now again, any size. In this one, I added color, and I ...

even drew little pictures. I wanted a pet, and I knew that there were four to choose from in my head, so as I mindmapped them out, it became crystal clear to me that what I wanted was a dog. Come here, boy. Make sure you share it with me with the hashtag 28 to make. Good girl! (uptempo electronic music)

I just loved the way this was presented and the immediate connection of the videos and their content which helped me discover and try things I would not have thought I could do. The affirmations from others doing the same thing and being able to gather ideas from the 'sharing' bit was also important for me. I have gained a lot creatively and it has fired parts of my imagination that lay hidden. I am just sorry it is formally over. I missed the last x3 sessions and the portfolio bit due to illness but will complete the other tasks and will continue explore developing those that really opened a creative slot for me. Above all thanks to the tutors - each of you - I loved the content you chose and the enthusiasm and creative energy you conveyed in just a few moments and the generous attitude of the skills share. That's it - Thank you, would recommend to anyone not to miss this opportunity.

I was looking for a way to get back into the habit of creating. The class has some fun ideas for projects that are easy to work on, which is super helpful. Every day I was excited to see what my new project was! But...a few seemed to not be what I considered sketching or drawing and didn't seem to fit the description. Overall, very helpful though :)

Best course ever on Creative Live. It's the foundation for doing anything or everything creative. Even if you think your only creative interest is say photography ...and you're not a drawer, maker or artist of any kind ...think again. This course will open up your mind and you will discover that actually you are a creative and you can pick up a pencil and draw... and it doesn't take up much time... 10-20 minutes a day. In the beginning it's not about the end result, it's about the doing and how it sets something off in your brain. It will make a huge difference to everything else you put your hands and mind to in life.
