Many people had such high hopes for 2021. Did you have any new year’s resolutions? A lot has happened in just a few months which has caused a change of plans. However, it is never too late to start. Whether it is the beginning of a new year or the new month, always set a goal; something you want to achieve. Remember the year is what you make it despite the things that may happen. Not sure where to start? I am sharing some tips for young creatives and those creatives who are young at heart!
One of the things that really allow you to grow as an artist is to constantly do new things. Creative challenges get you out of your comfort zone. Try your hand at something crafty such as a DIY project from Pinterest or YouTube. Maybe try origami and think about how this new skill can be incorporated into what is you specialty. Maybe you can make origami flowers to include with your thank you cards, maybe you can turn it into a business making origami bouquets! Explore your creative expressions, have fun with it and keep creating. Try something new this year! Embark on that creative project you always wanted to do. This is a great way to start of your month with some new creative energies!
Creativity is a journey of self and it is important as a creative to find yourself through your media. Trying new things are going to help you on this journey. Finding that connection with a media whether is it wire, clay or paint will allow you to tap into your creative energies to produce wonderful works of art.
It is important that you do not compare yourself with other artists.
You style, your choice of media and your being is unique. Focus on your strengths and the things you are interested in and work on them. Be yourself in your creations and put your work out there. Your biggest mistake would be thinking that your art is weird, not good enough, not perfect enough or that people would not like it. Own your style, be your authentic self and express yourself in creative ways. In a world of over eight billion, I guarantee you that people are going to connect to you and your art. Give yourself and your art a chance. Do not let self-doubt hold you back.
Make this something to do! Of course this would be dependent on the Covid restrictions in your country. Go to new places or to that place you always wanted to. Think about what there is within a reasonable distance to you and a place that is safe to be. This could be a park, a garden, a museum. Keep the inspiration going. To be honest, in a pandemic, I have found the best place to go is in nature where there are little to no humans. Fresh air and sunshine will be good for you. Go to the places that inspire you and spend some time there every week or every month. This will allow you to meet new people, or maybe just be by yourself. The world is yours to explore. Stay safe, be responsible and follow the protocols.
