Lately I have been immersing myself in my own creative process, to combat zoom fatigue and pandemic overwhelm. My creative side was beginning to feel a bit dormant, but with small and consistent efforts, I’ve revived it again. Here are some ideas that might help you revive yours:
How to Jumpstart Your Creativity – A Summer Plan:
1. Try a Free Creativity Class
There are so many FREE art and creativity classes being offered on-line these days. Check out this Nature Mandala I created during a virtual Women’s Circle…all delivered professionally, for free. So interesting and a lot of fun. I know you are seeing these same types of offerings on social media, so I recommend you try a few this summer – what have you got to lose?
2. Have Fun at Summer Festivals
Summer is the time for festivals, so make a plan to visit at least one for fun. As part of my commitment to jumpstart my own creativity, I attended The Brewery Art Walk, something I had meaning to do for years. What creative outdoor festivals are there in your community?
3. Fiddle with Old Craft Supplies
I like to make tissue paper collages with water & white glue, a good way to play with “bleeding tissue paper” that color blends when wet. I pulled out a bin of tissue scraps last week. What colorful scraps & loose ends do you have in a craft bin somewhere?
