Emily and I did our first Live Instagram video today. We had a couple of technical problems, but we were both happy with the way it turned out and want to do it again.
We talked about how our Zoom Studio chats began and how helpful they are to us and why.
Emily did a short collage demo using fabric in the beginning. One is a series of collage video’s she’s been doing for a few weeks now.
Towards the end we had a question from a viewer, and the sound went out on my voice. So Emily gave her some good advice, but I never had the chance to answer her.
Hazel asked what if you’re not creative or artistic but want the outlet of a creative hobby?
What I would have said is that I believe everyone has some creativity in them. It’s a matter of knowing yourself well enough to have a place to start experimenting. What I mean is that you have a sense of what you might like to do so there’s a place to be experimenting with mediums. The other thing is that whatever you do, enjoy it. The idea of playing is an important part of creating. Especially at the beginnings. And there are many beginnings in being creative.
My creativity takes many different forms now. But it didn’t when I first began. The more I do, the more ideas I have. One thing leads to another and the next….
