Day 100 - Why Creativity Bible?
My project was to build a website devoted to highlighting creative resources for people who are looking to explore creativity for the first time. Or if they were a mature artist, these books would be a review of the skills they may have already mastered. Like anyone who might leave a family bible for their decedents, I want to leave a creativity bible for my granddaughter, feature the creative texts that are important for preparing live a creative life. I want to have a place that dispel the myths about creativity, that one must have the creative gene or to have talent. No, everyone has the creative genes … creativity take a practice, a willingness to explore materials, resources, develop new skills… play and be curious to what shows up without holding any judgment to whether what was produced as good or bad. Creativity is a master problem solving skill which has not been encouraged to progress. These authors have shared the basics of what I consider the beginning — from Julia Cameron’s book, "The Artist Way" to Twyla Tharp’s, "The Creativity Habit" - all of the books I reviewed have prescribed skills to practice. Overall, this project has increased my dedication to sharing these summaries to help others begin their own creative discovery.
