Here are a five steps 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣4️⃣5️⃣ from our friends at Child Creativity Lab on how they go through the creative process:
1. INSPIRATION 🌱
Inspiration comes from “outside” of yourself. You can find it in nature or from a person, book or song that you like. Look around you – Inspiration is everywhere!
2. IDEA 💡
The idea is what comes from inspiration – but it grows inside of you.
Collect all your ideas – nothing is too small, too big or too crazy!
3. RESEARCH 🔎
This is where you start thinking about details and start planning.
Choose tools and materials that work best to bring your idea to life!
4. CREATE 👐
Creating is soooo much fun – this is where you “produce” your art. Don’t worry if things turn out differently than you planned!
The beauty of creating art is that there are NO RULES!
5. SHARE 🗣👀
Art is a form of communication and is meant to be shared.
Show us your ideas and your creativity through your art – we can’t wait to see it!
