Although all types of creative expression can be classified in a particular medium or movement (and those who simply can not find and define your own), and the person who creates has pioneered their predecessors and fathers, though we are all different and unique .
A famous brand of bottled natural mineral water state that their water “filters through the layers of volcanic rock, gaining unique mineral composition …” and this no doubt is supposed to add taste and health benefits of drinking a certain brand of water.
considered them to each of us as creative people our own unique mineral composition, consisting of all the various inputs, the influence and the experience we have had in our lives.
This independence is what makes us interesting and intriguing to others and ourselves. It is important that creative people to nurture this originality and others
So here are some of the ways you can enrich and enhance individual creative composition -.
Heroes and Influences – We all have people we are inspired by and aspire to be more like creative. We do not necessarily want to reproduce their work, but we admire their methods, their attitudes and beliefs to create.
Who you are considered among their heroes and influences? Pick out the main aspects and qualities you admire about each of them separately. Are symptoms common to all? How can you find more people who will continue to motivate and inspire you in the creation of
peers and colleagues -? Sometimes our heroes are those people around us, our creative peers, colleagues, friends, family. And often it does not necessarily create a special kind of respect for them but to approach some other aspects of life.
Again, think of what you specifically assess the people you know. Again, similarities and common themes are? How can you meet more people who will encourage you in a similar way
Books – Reading books is possibly one of the biggest things we can do creative people to inspire and educate us. There are actually two kinds of books we can use for this.
Firstly, books on specific creative activity or material, for example, “How to Draw Manga Japanese Characters” or “Willow Structures for Beginners” .
Second, there are books about creative people or groups of people, whether biographies of individuals or research on the whole creative movements like the European Renaissance painters of the early 15th Century, or The Beat Generation writers and poets in the 50’s America for example.
And of course, all the other thousands of types of books available. Arguably, anything and everything we read affects us to some degree. So to find the books that you enjoy and read as many as you can
exhibition and – however much we study the work of your favorite painters our books, or listen in our favorite music, get out and experience the art “in the flesh” is a different experience altogether.
Like going to shows, concerts and exhibitions of creative artists you know and love, try to see the full range of events and artists as possible, local and more globally famous.
Some areas of the world and of each country are more productive rich than others, but most of us are within an hour or two of the concert hall, Art Gallery or the exhibition center. Get out there and see what’s going on
Film and Theatre – Similar to performances and exhibitions, the atmosphere and the load to be in the movies or the theater is very different to see it on TV at home. Again try local theater and a few more offbeat production and films rather than just mainstream blockbusters. When was the last time you were really confused, surprised or mesmerized by the film or theater production
Websites and Internet – The strength and diversity of the Internet for research is almost beyond calculation. These days it’s developed to the point where almost anything you want to find out more about, it’s on the internet.
spend a few hours with some of the top search engines, just browsing tasks that you are in, and add a particularly interesting websites to your favorites to go back to again. This treasure trails linked pages can lead to the most fascinating and original creative thinking
groups, clubs, Classes -. Most major towns have some type of adult education program or evening classes, where people can go to learn about new things. Gone are the days of these categories be purely theoretical as well as a symbol of several categories of keep fit and car maintenance.
Now there are courses in almost any subject, and if you are ready to commit to a course and give it your best, rewards can be tremendous.
Again you do not have to be creative individuals you know. The more diverse the experience that we have, the more enriched we become and the more people we have to draw on when we prepare ourselves. How can you find out more about the groups and classes in your area
Culture and Travel – How much do you know about their own culture, locally and nationally? Our cultures have almost an immeasurable impact on us and by being informed about them, we can better understand some of the reasons why we are the people we are.
Travel to, or just to learn about, other cultures also can be one of the most successful and inspiring ways to add to the experience, and allows us to be more creative when we return.
any culture, either in today’s world, or in history, has always been interested in exploring more about? How you can start this quest for knowledge, what would be the first step?
All of the above are just a selection of ideas, there are many other ways to promote our experience and develop our unique creative personality. Try as many as possible and subject you enjoy the most and who have the most profound impact on their creative output phone. Outcomes may surprise you …
