Puff the Magic Dragon
Puff the Magic Dragon
BEGINS July 2, 2017
Puff the Magic Dragon is a powerful magical character that can help you help yourself.
This is a course for you, oh seasoned Artists as Magicians, who are quite fond of and familiar with playful imaginings and would benefit from rekindling a twinkle in your eye and a spring in your magical step.
If you haven't yet broken free and feel like the story you want to live is locked up inside you and you've been handed a hopeless diagnosis by people in the real world, perhaps what you need is an imaginary friend? A magical being who can come along side you and remind you of your potential, your possibilities and your creativity.
In this course you will use basic creative tools (pretend, make believe, imagination) to make an alternative for yourself. You will open up a portal to the imagination, crawl through and learn to face your fears by seeing them in a new perspective, pinpoint the secret message you need the most and practice bravery in acting on that belief.
The Imagine Nation (or Honah Lee) is a place to practice and grow in your ability to make believe (or make beliefs) for yourself. Eventually, when it is time, you will desire AND be brave enough to return to the Real World and embody your new truths and your unlocked story.
Jackie (the boy in Puff the Magic Dragon) teaches us how to create an imaginary friend who believes in us when no one else does, draws out our core beliefs and gives us ample opportunity to creatively experiment with our fears so we can overcome them and believe in ourselves.
In order to complete the course students must send a letter to the professor sharing what they learned (more details laid out in the packet received in the mail). The professor will send a letter of response in return. This correspondence should occur within the timeframe of the quarter.
