A fun activity to challenge your mind to think like an artist and train your eye to see like an artist.
Creativity is a funny thing. We all have it, but do we train to use it? Like planning runs before a big race or rehearsing pieces on the piano as a recital nears. Creativity is a skill that needs to be honed, no matter our age or interests. The answer to problem-solving and idea creation, even businesses know the importance of cultivating this skill for success, like in this great article.
This exercise uses your brain in a different way. Instead of mimicking a pattern or shape, you use one shape to create a completely new idea (But we will just call it fun- exercise makes it sound like work!)
It’s useful, it’s creative, and most of all it is FUN! Gather some leaves, grab your markers & paper, and watch along to create fun critters (or whatever you create!)
