Inspired by my late father, he once said, “In future, do something that you will enjoy doing and mean something…”, this is how simply the seed for ArtKulture was embedded. So many years later, the energy and motivation my family has given, here we are with an opportunity to “unleash our creative potential”!
Creativity in the current world means different to different people. Being creative gives us opportunities to try out new ideas, and new ways of thinking and problem-solving. Creative activities help us acknowledge and celebrate our own uniqueness and diversity. Creativity encourages self-expression, a way to create something from personal feelings and experiences. Through ArtKulture, we aim to provide a platform to do just this!
ArtKits will give you means to learn new skills and use materials to help pursue your creative flair. ArtKlubs will give you support and guidance to continue your creativity and indeed provide opportunities to meet and share your passion and ideas. While ArtKare is there to equip individuals with tools that can aid in becoming more aware of improving your mental well being and bring about a more positive outlook in life.
The theory is that people are either left-brained or right-brained, meaning that one side of their brain is dominant. If you’re mostly analytical and methodical in your thinking, you’re said to be left-brained. If you tend to be more creative or artistic, you’re thought to be right-brained.
If you’re trying to nourish your creative side, here are a few ways to get started:
Read about and listen to the creative ideas of others.
You might discover the seed of an idea you can grow, or set your own imagination free.
Try something new.
Take up a creative hobby, such as playing an instrument, drawing, or storytelling. A relaxing hobby can help your mind wander to new places.
This can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and what makes you tick. Why do you gravitate toward certain activities and not others?
Keep it fresh.
Break your set patterns and go outside your comfort zone. Take a trip to a place you’ve never been. Immerse yourself in another culture. Take a course in a subject you haven’t studied before.
