Creativity can be shown through many different outlets. A way in which one person can be creative is totally different to how someone else could be. For example you could put a chef next to a sculptor. Both have a sense of freedom in the end product that they want to attain. However, a person who is creative in one field would be more likely is more creative in others. From personal experience of creativity I like to draw as an outlet of creativity but also have been making small pieces of writing in my spare time.
I feel that you are born either creative or not and it’s not something that can be taught; although you can be taught to be a painter, a chef or a writer. There is a drive and desire that is inert in creativity. Art and creativity are highly synonymous and I think it is because of a drive that you have to create something great. A person could spend their life working to succeed in their aspirations of art because a satisfaction of your own creativity is hard to achieve. It is what drives people to become great.
I think that creativity leads to new things and there is a link between the acceleration of an art through creativity. E.g. the impressionist painters only got to paint outside because someone was creative enough to make tubes to store paint in, this then leads on into the impressionists painting differently and more creatively because they had less constraints to hold them back. They are able to move outside and change the way they paint. This was the first time where you could paint in a way you wanted against they way people were ‘trained’ to paint.
Creativity cannot be rushed as much as it can’t be wrong.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
