Yes, YOU are creative.

“I’m not creative.  I can’t paint.  I can’t draw”.  Words I hear all the time.

“Yes, You CAN!  Creative expression is not about making something look like a photograph.  It’s about using color and smushes and dabs and globs to symbolically represent anything you want”.  Words I repeat all the time

Take a look at this portrait and poem by Therese Lydia Josef.

 Therese shares her world with wonderful color both in paint and words.   She teaches children’s classes too.  Take a look at some of the kid’s work here.  It’s inspiring.
I Want What She’s Having by therese-joseph

my vision
gone blurry, my focus gone weak
all I can see:
her savour the flavor – no sharing with me

my mouth
closed barely, no sense in my cheek
all I can fate:
is fiction aroma of what she just ate

Try it with crayons!  They’re not intimidating.  They’re cheap.

Life is short. Just have fun.

  1. Great site — thank you for sharing! I wish I had been encouraged to be creative at an earlier age rather than stifled in a box!!! Now I have/want/need to learn to think out of the box with creativity!! 😀
