We are all creative in some form or shape in our life whether it is explicitly art as art or when you are working your job, we all have areas that are interesting and can be seen as creative when our lives are looked at outside the box or bubble.

Creativity doesn't have to stick strictly with art. Have you ever thought or made a more efficient way of doing something and it is now part of your daily routine? Could be considered creative in thinking outside the box to find a solution.



As for someone having a slump or are in creative differences with themselves. I would put down the pen/brush/guitar as this has now become a chore for you and the inspiration you are looking for is coming from a different place within yourselves. As much as we all know, time does help when it comes to moving on to other inspirations. Time will make you start to think less of that gnawing feeling of hopelessness. To try to force something out of a state of mind that is in a slump and might be seeing the world with different eyes (not a good or bad different, just a different viewpoint that might skew your ideals or make you produce something not truly 'you')

With time you are given a mental freedom to "forget". To move on and move in a direction that is entirely new and can help you keep focused on the day to day. You should not try to find inspiration, you should take up a new something in your life that provides a new sensory experience for you to ingest. This can be anything, it can be picking up a random book in the library, to doing a repetitious job that frees your mind to think. Some find drives to nowhere or somewhere can invoke new ideas and thoughts that can be the catalyst that leads to a new explosion of inspiration or interest in your artistic imaginings.


You're an artist, you have it in your soul to produce or create things of beauty or wonderment for the joy of others and more importantly yourself. You need to find your own unique take on life, and that doesn't just go away. You can lose touch with, stray away or become rusty in your art but you won't grow older and lose the artistic expression that is in your veins and is what makes you who you are. You will just need to take the time to be given another opportunity that can present itself at any moment with a blinding flash of emotion and drive.

You are not to miss this bus, you are to get on and not ask for the destination, you are to sit in that artists chair and take the express line to a new world. A new idea. Better than before but not the best. You will always be creating and you will always be an artist.

Just not right now.



Right now you are just a person in need of a much needed break. From the harshness of a mind that is born to create but cannot make.

I bet it's helpful for certain types, and not so much for others. Some of us fuzzy brainers can't manage the skills to be so proactive (at least on an individual basis). Classes are probably a good idea in that context.
She is a counselor who works with art, as opposed to an art counselor....
Although she gets a lot of referral work to do art with other people's clients.

All that said, she isn't an artist, in the normal sense,
so her skill is mostly her bravery to just do the art...

And she doesn't teach technique etc...
although she does instruct people on activities to do with a focus.

Her work with art and others is mainly getting them to open their minds to new places,
where they can talk out their trauma. (which is the pop. she works with)

It's akin to more of a centering and processing meditation really.
The art is just the medium to do that work.

She works to people's ability and pushes their bravery mostly.

But yeah, there are a few folks who have been resistant...
However, that doesn't mean that the art didn't work

The people who seem to fight it the hardest are the people most often surprised.

She doesn't do art with everyone that walks through the door.
And I can only think of a couple people who wanted nothing to do with it.
That is, most people eventually trust my Wife enough to pick up a piece of paper and one crayon.

That's wonderful. Does she get them to create something based on anything specific, like a memory or is it open for the individual?

Off the top of my head....

Drawing your breath, at various emotions and temperaments.

It's not what they draw, but in the questions that are asked about the art (Colours, shapes, changes etc...)

That is there the unlocking comes from.
