You don’t have to be an artist to be more creative in your daily life. The trend of do-it-yourself crafts are growing every day, and now it’s easier than ever to enrich your world. Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt & Amrany has a few suggestions to help inspire your new year.
The first thing to do is to seek out forms of art or entertainment that you think may not appeal to you, just to try it out and get new perspectives. For example, if you’re not a painting enthusiast, make it a point to see a few different painting galleries all with different styles. Although you may not be a fan of a certain genre or medium, you will be surprised at how immersing yourself in a new point of view will make your day-to-day life more creative.
The second thing to do is to make it a habit to carry a sketchbook or camera with you at all times. Even if you doubt your drawing skills or have just a bare-bones camera, it’s all about capturing what inspires you. You never know what will catch your eye when you are running errands or taking a walk outside for a break. This will train your mind to single out things that appeal to you and then enable you to arrange your surroundings at home in a way that pleases you more.
Keeping a journal is another excellent way for anyone to strengthen their creative side. Writing down your thoughts every day, no matter how trivial it may seem, keeps your mind active and can lead you to thought processes you may have never considered before. You could even make it electronic and write a blog to share with the public for feedback and suggestions. And who knows, you may even inspire someone else!
Last, when everyone talks about completing their “bucket list” they always say “someday”. But why not now? Being spontaneous urges your mind to run on its first instinct, and can really open your perspectives to new things. So take that bucket list and pick something to do right now– even better if it’s something a little outside your comfort zone. Remember, taking that first step into unfamiliar territory is how many new hobbies, skills, and memories are made.
Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt & Amrany believes that creativity should be a part of every aspect of life, so make it your 2015 resolution to have the most creative year yet!
