  • Description
    ‘When an old man dies, a library burns down.’ This African proverb is the thought on which this entire book is based. It is therefore a collection and a recollection of the various teaching material the author has used as an art teacher in his entire teaching career. It is not a How To book. Nor is it a Do It Yourself book. It can at best serve as random inspirations for enabling creative thinking. By throwing light into the way the creative mind thinks. It has lots of stories, anecdotes, concepts, quotes, examples and exercises that the author has used to enlighten his students. The structure of the book is free-flowing. Much like the stream of consciousness. One thing leading to the other. To the other. To the other. Though the recollections are random, they have been broadly divided into eight chapters. But that’s only to give a method to the madness. The chapters broadly cover spontaneous thinking, Lateral thinking, the story of language, the need to be forever receptive, exercises to unleash your creativity, among many things.

    Author Info
    • After 28 years, Gangadharan Menon quit advertising to take up his first and second love: teaching and travel. His wildlife photographs and travel articles have been published in two books: Evergreen Leaves and Tales of a Driftwood. This new book, The Garden of Ideas, is a collection of all the things he has been sharing with his students at Rachana Sansad College of Applied Art and Craft. It has all the stories he has told, all the quotes he has used, all the concepts he has discussed, and all the exercises he has given to his students - over the nine years that he has been teaching there. And since the book is also based on all that he has gathered in the 28 years of practicing creative thinking in advertising, he feels this book would be an inspiration for both students and teachers of art.
