This month is about expressing yourself by putting ink, pencil, or paint on paper. Don’t feel like painting? Try knitting, embroidery, pottery, or anything else. The important thing is that you create something that speaks to you.
Creating is as much about the process as it is the result. Don’t let perfectionism stop you from trying. If you are a veteran creative, use this time to learn a new technique or practice something difficult. All artists have room to grow!
Before getting started, try seeking out artistic inspiration. Visit an art gallery, join online communities, or visit an art supply store to get excited about what you are going to create.
There are many benefits to creating art. Being creative reduces stress and anxiety, improves imagination, builds self-worth, and improves brain function. Art interpretation opens your mind to different perspectives and can broaden the way you view the world.
Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, there are many ways to create. Here is a list of activities you can try.
Self-reflection is the key to self-awareness. It allows you to look neutrally at your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions.
It is about questioning what you do and why you do it. Through this practice, you’ll be able to look at yourself with newfound interest and curiosity.
