There is a misconception that only artists are creative. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we know that everyone is creative. And everyone can enjoy making art no matter what skill level. Here are some tips to help you free your creative spirit. First, creativity is about expression. No one can express your dreams and feelings like you. So, when you make art from your heart and soul, it’s perfect. You don’t have to do realistic interpretations of your subject matter unless you want to. The point is to express yourself. It’s also about enjoying the process. Pop artist Andy Warhol was a big believer in making art whether it’s “good” art or “bad” art. He was just about making art. We love that liberating attitude. Creating art is often a tranquil process that lets you focus and forget about the cares of the world for a while. It’s great self-care. Creativity is about curiosity and experimentation. Finding the right medium for you, whether it’s oils, collage, watercolors, pen and ink, etc., is half the fun. Did you know that we offer free classes in a wide variety of areas to help you discover new talents or refine existing ones? We do! Here are some more tips about creative confidence.
