May 2017: Exploring Ideas of Creativity

ArtCentral is Exploring ideas for Creativity

By Elizabeth Freer
Matthews Opera House, ArtCentral Manager

Elizabeth Freer, ArtCentral Mgr.

Do you think you are a creative person? Were you creative as a child? Have you ever built something without following directions? Improvised and found a solution? Fixed a computer or piece of equipment? Made up a joke? Explained a difficult concept to a child? Mowed the lawn this week in a different pattern than last week? Each requires creativity.

Creativity is not owned by artists, magicians or scientists; it belongs to all of us. My creativity and your creativity are so different that they possibly cannot be compared.
