Find Your Creative Side
Many people think that being creative is something that only a few are blessed with. I am here to tell you they are wrong, and that anyone can be creative, you just need to find the correct outlet for it, in order for you to actually see your creativity shine through. Art has always been stereotyped as drawings, paintings, sculptures. The kind of thing you would typically find in a gallery. I think that this is correct to a certain degree. This stereotype over what 'art' can be defined as has caused many potential creatives to shy away from it.
You may be asking, so how can I present my creative self without picking up a pencil and sketching the nearest object? Well have you ever considered presenting art through your hobbies? Or through the clothing you wear every day, or through your social media, or even through your school notes? Creativity could simply be the selection of coloured pens you choose to write with when writing up school notes. It may not feel very creative, but the fact you used colours as opposed to simply black pen allowed your creativity to control how your work looked, and why the colours you used looked good together.
What about the clothing you wear? Putting together pieces into one masterpiece. Sounds like art to me. Can fashion be art? It can if you want it to be; customising your clothing to adjust your style, wearing a piece with something that isn't necessarily the default option, mixing and matching colours depending upon your mood. Wearing all of one colour, wearing all except one colour. Taking inspiration from catwalk designs and integrating it into your every day wardrobe. This all sounds creative to me, try it for yourself. Make getting dressed in the morning a fun, creative activity.
My point is, I believe it is important to push creativity through your every day activities to almost enhance your life into a piece of art. Why put yourself through the monotonous routine of life, when you can enhance it with a creative mindset. Doodle in your planner, create a scrapbook, write in a journal, paint in the journal. Document your masterpiece outfits. Take inspiration from others. Use your creative side, we both know you have one.
