The word Creativity might take on different meanings for different people. Here are some meanings that we came up with on Saturday and I few others I pulled from a previous workshop, passion, fun, joy, intangible, unknown, our true nature, movement, new, expression of self, ability to stand alone, open, growth, flow, journey, ever present, recognizing that we are collaborators, part of creation, transcendence, release, surprise, discovery, inspiration, freedom, risk taking, and insight.
In the workshop we wrote, we laughed, we moved to music, we painted, we shared, we collaged and exchanged ideas. Then we were exhausted!
These are the only photos I remembered to take. I didn’t get any of the final collages which is fine since I actually think it’s more about process than finished product. It’s so important to enjoy the process and understand that you’re not going to love everything that you make. You are always learning something new that helps you the next time around. The creative process is a lot like life, you can’t be worried about making mistakes. If you were you’d never leave the house and what fun would that be?
Thanks Keri, Kevin, Suzanne, Toby, Nicole and Liz for allowing me to bring you on a creative journey to the land of possibility.
