10 Things CREATIVE people do – Have you ever wondered why some people are more creative than others? Did you ever wish that you had more of that particular gene? The good news is that research shows that happiness and creativity are not only related, they can be developed. Here are 10 ways to jumpstart your creativity, starting now:

1. Listen In: Listen to your intuition and capture your new ideas. Whether from your morning shower, nighttime dreams, when running, in the car, or in nature, keep an idea notebook and jot it down.

2. Mind Your Mindset: When you start something new, you can either choose to put yourself down and succumb to the inner critic (fixed mindset) or enjoy the process of creation (growth mindset).

Goals:

  • 10.1P: Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated ideas.
  • What is one thing that is the SAME about using SHAPE in an artwork and using FORM in an artwork? What is one thing that is DIFFERENT? Write this out and then SHARE this idea with your studio mates at your table.

Reflection: How much of your letter did you get done? One shape? Two shapes? Gluing / Taping sides?

What are YOU talking about – all I hear is CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP! http://blog-imgs-50.fc2.com/a/f/g/afg2/The-critique-Group.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.
  • Get together for 10 minutes and talk with one another about the ideas of your concentration work. We have been away from it for about 4+ weeks and you might be a bit rusty regarding what it is all about. While you talk with one another – write out the thoughts you come up with regarding your ideas and the progress of the artworks. 

Reflection: As you look back on the bast 2.5 quarters of work, what are 3 of your biggest impressions from your studio-mate’s works?
