My curriculum, Concept Aware™,  on creativity and concept development explores the dynamic elements within the creative process used by artists of all mediums to develop an idea into a concept and an image into a style, a project, a book or a body of work. This paradigm can be employed by individual photographers and as a teaching tool in assisting students to identify essential elements of artistic decision-making and to develop a strong visual language.
