Creative Arts Philosophy

Being creative is more than having a talent or trait. Being creative is a way of life. Creativity should be compared to a philosophy of life that is not specific to arts as commonly conceived.

This is what an artist does every time he applies paint to canvas. It is also what athletes do when facing dynamic challenges on the field and entrepreneurs practice when managing new situations.

Practicing Creative Arts

It's essential for a well-rounded human to practice and promote creative techniques in his/her approach to life. Some things to consider follow:

Living Creatively
