Celebrating creativity

Do you ever speak about your creative projects with others? Wouldn’t it be nice to speak positively with others about the value of our creative sides?

When it comes to our creations we tend to say ¨Oh you know, it’s not that good.¨ ¨Oh, it’s so easy to do, everybody can do that.¨ ¨Oh I know a person who’s REALLY good at this.¨ 

I know that I say these things because I grew up with the idea that drawing and making art is just a hobby. However, on my current route to find my truth I wonder: what if my (he)ART could support my life? 

I believe that everybody deserves to be encouraged in the direction of their own creative dreams. When we respect creativity in ourselves and in others we celebrate life to the fullest.

Creativity opens doors to happiness, joy, open minds and playfulness!

We all have our own beliefs about creativity and artists. With saying things casually like: ¨Oh, I’m not so artistic¨ to our friends or children we fall into a trap. Because when we say things like this we tell others that there’s a thing as ¨not being creative¨. Which is far from the truth.

YOU are creative, you’ve always been. 

Being conscious about the words you choose when you talk about artists and creativity is a constructive way. You’ll cultivate optimism, an open mind, playfulness and tons of fun. This is the reason why I organize Drink & Draw Tilburg in collaboration with SOOSS and ‘Drawing away’ A creative retreat to San Sebastián with all my enthusiasm and love.

Let me know if you’d like to celebrate your creative side with me! Leave a comment below book your spot for the creative retreat to San Sebatián April 4th-8th 2019 or join Drink & Draw Tilburg on February 22nd.
