Tips for Embracing Your Creativity

Today the Liv Avenida Blog has a couple of ideas to help you discover and harness your creativity. Use our tips to develop your creativity and become a more artistic person this month. We hope you find the chance to get out of your apartment here in Chandler, AZ and make some art before the month is through.


Take an art class

A great way to unleash your creativity is through art classes and workshops. The Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass offers classes for both youth and adults to learn how to create art with glass as the primary medium. The Mobile Museum of Art also offers classes for adults to learn how to create art in a variety of mediums, including pottery, painting, drawing, printmaking, glass fusing, and even puppet-making and shell engraving. These are great opportunities to learn and get valuable tips from professionals.


Embrace difficulty

Phil Hansen thought his art career was over when he developed a shake in his hands. Instead of giving up, he learned how to “embrace the shake.” Hansen says, “Limitations may be the most unlikely of places to harness creativity, but perhaps one of the best ways to get ourselves out of ruts, rethink categories and challenge accepted norms. And instead of telling each other to seize the day, maybe we can remind ourselves every day to seize the limitation.”


Visit your local craft store

Go to your favorite local craft store for paints, fabrics, paper, and other craft supplies. We think to a store like Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store is a great way to get you excited for creating new things and starting projects, especially because the store should have everything you need, and the employees there can also give you tips. Whether you want to paint, make pottery, or design your own clothing, you’ll find what you need at your local craft store.


Get inspired

Get out of your house to visit a local art gallery, experience a part of town you’ve never visited, or meet someone new. You never know who or what will inspire you. Carry around a notebook to record your ideas and your observations. Your next great idea is out there, so put yourself in a situation to find it!
