Creativity gets us out of the box


I love this quote by John Mayer “They love to tell you,  stay inside the lines. But something’s better on the other side.” It’s from his song ‘No Such Thing’ and I feel like it really applies to being creative. It gets us into new possibilities and options that did not previously exist. It gets us out of our own boxes, beyond the lines that were drawn for us at the start. This is something I love about the painting process, is that it’s a safe and easy way to practice being creative and expanding myself. Then, as I grow this creative courage in the studio, I can go into the ‘real world’ and be more brave, more curious, more creative with greater confidence. I intend to offer support to my students in growing this creative and risk-taking muscle in the workshops I offer.]
