Have you ever really thought about the importance of being creative?
I believe that creativity is a fundamental part of being human.
♥ Creating art is for everyone, no matter what level you are at. ♥
Here is why:
This ability to think creatively is, on the one hand, an integral reason for our very evolution. Without it we may not have started experimenting with tools or created language to better express ourselves and communicate.
And because we are visual creatures, we also created visual art on the walls of caves to document stories and ideas. It is in our very DNA to create.
On the other hand – pursuing creativity is just fun!
Fast forward from the prehistoric cave paintings, through the centuries of technological (and artistic) advancement and you’ll see that we are still doodling away!
Creativity doesn’t have to be life-altering “Eureka” moments or re-creating a Rembrandt.
We’re all familiar with a child playing for fun within their imaginary universes, making less-than-realistic animals out of sticks or Lego, or drawing portraits in the dirt. It’s in our very genes to pursue creativity in a million different ways.
As we grow older, some people feel they lose that urge to create – but we believe it is still there in us all. It’s just a matter of finding the right avenue that makes that person ‘tick’.

Being creative and creating art is allowed to be fun.
And the fact that it becomes "art" happens as something secondary.
As long as you are creative, you can play like when you were little.
If you at some point decide to exhibit your creative creations - yes, then you have made the decision, that what you have created is art.
Until then, you can play, experiment, do crazy things, adapt, try something new - paint over, throw in the trash and have a lot of fun!
