Creativity Tips for You!
Because you don’t always see the beauty in your own art, you’ll benefit from activities that will reconnect you with a sense of playfulness.
Creativity Tip #1: Set an intention to make at least one ugly or messy piece of art this week. Then just go for it! Keep it as a reminder to let go of perfectionism and focus on one unexpected thing that you discovered in the process.
Creativity Tip #2: Reconnect with your inner child. Even if you don’t believe your latest work of art is a masterpiece, smile and say “Thank you. That’s beautiful”, then frame it or hang it on your refrigerator.
Creativity Tip #3: Take a break from your project and engage in an easy repetitive task such as doodling circles in various patterns and sizes. Rather than focusing on the exact roundness of the circle, get playful as you discover the many new patterns and arrangements that you can make.
