6 sureshot ways to stir up creativity

6 sureshot ways to stir up creativity

Art and creativity go hand in hand. So we are not surprised when parents or students complain that they are not creative. EVERYONE IS CREATIVE, most just don’t know how to express it! We teamed up with a few artists and curated a super list for you-

  1. ART IS MESS, and that’s okay! If you are driving to work will you crib about your car tyres wearing out? Then why do you crib about a living space getting messed up with art? We recommend setting up a small space where your kid can freely experiment and get messy without the fear of judgement or ridicule. Cover the expensive stuff up and let kids be kids!
  2. Stop directing. Stop instructing and start collaborating. Instead of saying, “Paint a beach,” encourage them to “experiment with mixing colors using different types of brushes and paper,”
  3. Speak specifically about art. When talking to your child about his artwork, try to be precise in your comments. For instance, instead of giving a generic compliment, say, “I see you used a lot of purple. Why did you choose that color?”
  4. Explore your child’s process. Often the best way to encourage conversation about your child’s art is simply to say, “Tell me about what you made,” or ask, “Did you have fun making it?”
  5. Don’t draw with your child. When parents draw something representational while a younger child is sketching, it can frustrate him. “It’s better to be near him and let him know that you’re interested and supportive of his art-making,” she says.
  6. Let it be. When a child finishes a piece, don’t suggest additions or changes. It’s important for a child to feel that what she’s created is enough — even if it’s just a dot on the page.

Let Art be art and Work be work!

Too often we try to take art seriously. At Artkulture we want Art to be a healing force and not a force for enforcing control.
