Driving Question: How might I grow my creativity during the COVID-19 crisis through exploring the science of creativity and innovation and experimenting with art?

What were your goals for this module? How did you achieve them?

My goals for this module were to grow my creativity, to understand the geometry needed to both make and understand my quilt, and to make something to symbolize the COVID-19 crisis. I feel that I have achieved all my goals by having a lot of patience and determination to figure out the many challenges.

What did you learn about yourself or about your creative process or about your medium?

Again, patience I think was the biggest thing this module. In sewing, I needed to have patience in order to pin, sew, and press each individual piece. For my creative process, I learned that it is important to be patient and think all possible ideas before analyzing them and determining which one is best. Lastly, I needed a lot of patience in order to learn about the many factors that go into the math for a golden spiral.
