The mind map is a way to explore information related to a central theme—a word or image in the center of a blank page from which associations radiate.

In this workshop, we will use the mind map exercise as a visual thinking tool to examine the genesis of our connections to our creative practices and to consider the elements that inform them, including primary interests, dreams, memories, influences, current events, and key relationships. Additional related exercises build upon and expand findings. Discoveries serve as a springboard for work created throughout the term that holds more personal and, therefore, universal resonance.

Supplementary materials will be offered to complement and enrich the learning experience.

The Creative Mind Map is open to those using or experimenting with any media including photographers, videographers, filmmakers, painters, writers, and bookmakers.

Instructor: Janelle Lynch

Janelle Lynch is an American artist whose work reveals an inquiry into themes of connection, presence, and transcendence. While she photographed exclusively in the landscape for the first two decades of her career, Lynch's practice has expanded to include environmental portraiture, still life, and cyanotypes. Since 2015, all of her work has been informed by her ongoing training in perceptual drawing and painting. 

Lynch’s photographs are in many private and public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the International Center of Photography, New York; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Her photographs and cyanotypes have been shown worldwide, including at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; LUMA Westbau, Zurich; the Shanghai Center of Photography; and Flowers Gallery, London, which represents her work.
