This project also serves as an attempt to identify the cognitive preferences of visual thinkers to foster their creative skills and to enhance their creative process. The finished product is the content of a workshop comprised by five sections. Each section includes an explanation of the essential topics about creativity and some tools in ideational thinking. The content includes a set of activities to allow participants to experience the information in order to gain a better understanding and retain the information for longer time.
