Club Creative Studio shares information about CREATIVITY.
Today, is Two-Cent Tuesday and that means I blog about low-cost creativity. I’d like to share a suggestion that is also a “no-brainer” activity for the one that is somewhat crafty or artistic already. If you look upon your artistic time as a place to experience personal serenity or creative growth as a creative outlet for personal growth, take some of that time to consider sharing your passion for the arts.
There are opportunities for creative growth in sharing the passions for arts you have with others around you or in the community. There are opportunities for sharing your trials and errors by blogging about your experiences, teaching your craft, being an active participant in a formed group supporting the arts or allowing someone to work alongside of you while you physically create art. Help the visual learner experience creative growth from your artistic expressions.
Share the love, and reasons why you create. Pass the ideas of creativity along. Show someone else how your passion makes you feel. Pass on the creativity bug, and you may find that you grow in appreciation and idea-flow as well. Watching the wheels turn from other creative people is contagious and inspiring.
If you are busy being creative in your space anyway, just invite someone to explore your supplies alongside of you. Having creative company gives you someone to get instant feed-back from if you are sharing questions and experiences. Creating along side someone, gives you on-the-spot ideas that turn into motivation and courage to try something new in technique.
You can be the model and mentor and not even realize it by merely allowing someone to work along side you. As an example of being a creative model, take into account the times that you sit near a child simply “playing” with clay. Perhaps the very young do not know how to make a “clay snake”. By offering a “copy-cat” situation, seeing becomes doing and thus, you have shared creativity.
By sharing time when you offer unstructured guidance, you give the gift of confidence to someone exploring their own creativity. How will you nurture creativity in others today?
As school days end with summer vacation near, the art classroom does not have to disappear until next year. Nurture creativity around you and encourage, inspire, prompt and challenge creativity to be explored in everyday life. Creativity is indeed contagious. Pass it on, and see how it spreads! Happy creating to you and yours!
