Sometimes my clients tell me they want to be creative, they try to be creative, but they don’t know where start.
I usually assign them tiny creative acts. Our intellects and our culture adore sweeping changes, but I find our inner artists just want to pull out the art supplies and play.
A great place to dip your toes back into getting creative is in the things you loved as a kid. Kids are given so much permission to do stuff–just to do stuff. Art that doesn’t have to BE anything–but fun.
If you’re feeling really blocked, don’t underestimate the safety and permission to be found in “kid” art supplies. Go ahead, pull out the crayons, pick up some play dough, or ….dye some Easter eggs!
