17 Ideas to SparkCreativity
Humans long to create meaning.
In their lives, in their career, in their art. We want to squeeze meaning out of anything. As artists that sometimes means, we spend a lot of time waiting to have the perfect inspiration, or an ideal set up to create art. We get in the mindset that creating art isn’t worth it if it isn’t meaningful. Maybe that looks like only wanting to do shows if you have a main part.
Getting discouraged when the art you create in the studio is just silly and frivolous instead of deeply intriguing and meaningful.
But, we can’t get to the meaningful stuff unless we are making time to create. Period.
If we are making time to create regularly, then, inspiration will have more opportunity to find us. That doesn’t mean everything you create will have meaning, but you will definitely increase your chances.
