Those of us in the creative business are creative right? Well, yes, but many of us get stuck for new ideas because of budgets, clients, deadlines, or just being uninspired. How do you break out the best ideas and creativity within you? How do you explore alternative ways of thinking in order to get the big idea? How do you get an abstract idea to gain traction and become a reality? Excellent questions — and you’ll discover the answers in this literally thought-provoking workshop.
This workshop will explore experimental methods of getting out of your comfort zone and generating fresh, innovative thinking. The point is to release your inner potential so you can push your work further and smarter. Expect a very interactive day as we cover these topics:
- Understanding the purpose and value of creativity
- Tips and tools for thinking out of the box
- Ways to hone inspiration and make it a real solution

You may receive a partial refund of your tuition if you drop a class or your enrollment is terminated by SVC due to lack of progress or disciplinary problems. In these cases, this is the schedule for determining the amount of your refund:
Cancellation and Refund Policy for Classes:
SVC will refund all money paid if the student is not accepted. This includes instances where a class is cancelled by the school.
SVC will refund all the money paid if the student cancels within five business days (excluding Sundays and holidays) after registration and/or an initial payment is made, as long as the student has not begun training.
SVC will retain the established $45 registration fee if the student cancels after the fifth business day after registration and/or making an initial payment.
If training is terminated after the student enters classes, SVC may retain the registration fee established under (3) of this subsection, plus a percentage of the total tuition as described in the following table:
# of Classes Attended

When calculating refunds, the official date of a student's termination is the last day of recorded attendance:
(a) When the school receives notice of the student's intention to discontinue the training program; or,
(b) When the student is terminated for a violation of a published school policy which provides for termination; or,
(c) When a student, without notice, fails to attend classes for thirty calendar days.
All refunds must be paid within thirty calendar days of the student’s official termination date.
There is a $75 cancellation fee for no-shows and enrollees dropping a one-day workshop without a valid excuse within 3 business days of the scheduled start time as published on the SVC website.
This refund policy is in accordance with Washington State Law, 490-105-130 (RCW 28C.10.050 (1)(b)).
School of Visual Concepts
SVC helps people already in the business of marketing, branding, design, UX, and content creation fill in the gaps in their knowledge through public full- and half-day workshops and custom corporate workshops.
If you’re looking to add to your portfolio or fill in some blank spaces in your brain, you can’t do much better than SVC.
The instructors are all top-notch working professionals who bring real world and big brand knowledge into the classroom. Our thinking is that the best people to teach you something aren't teachers. So, instead of a full-time faculty, our classes and workshops are taught by working professionals. More often than not, these are people at the top of their game, not wannabes or used-to-be-best. The connections you'll make with these pros can sometimes be as valuable as the material they'll teach you.
All this happens in an environment of friendliness, helpfulness and encouragement. Might this have something to do with the fact that 99% of SVC students say they’d recommend us?
We’re 100% certain that it does.
