How to improve your creativity through art

How to improve your creativity through art

Creativity is an essential tool for artists of any discipline, which anyone who works in the arts professionally will attest to, whether it be cinema, painting, sculpture or any other profession related to one of the seven arts. However, we don’t always pay enough attention to how art and various artistic disciplines can help us to improve our creativity, even if we don’t do them for a living.

What is creativity?

Creativity is the ability to invent or create. Or in other words, the ability to generate new ideas or new concepts. Someone can also be considered a creative person if they are capable of resolving problems or conflicts in an original and unconventional way.

These qualities that we just mentioned are useful in the world of art, but also in the corporate sphere and even in a family environment. Would you like to learn how to boost your creativity?

How to increase creativity

Since people with creative personalities tend to look for original solutions to specific problems, companies are increasingly looking for candidates with high levels of creativity over and above any other skills or expertise. Of course, having a creative mindset also helps you to experiment, go one step further and exceed your own expectations by producing better and better sculptures. What can you do to improve your creativity?

Dedicate time to thinking and imagining

Set aside at least an hour every day just for yourself, forget all your worries for the day and let your mind flow. You might find this difficult at first, but you’ll soon see that, with practice, it will get easier and easier. Come up with a topic you find interesting and think about it in detail.

Ask lots of questions

Ignore those that say curiosity killed the cat, you should ask as many questions as you can! Asking questions about various aspects of life is good practice, so that, without realising, you end up thinking about everything you want to do. Curiosity is what leads us to think about ourselves, don’t forget that.


Most games are great for promoting creativity, whether they be board games, kid’s games or video games. This is because most of them require you to come up with ways to tackle various different problems and challenges. As such, playing (in moderation, of course) will help you to develop your creative skills.

Take some risks

If there is one thing that creative people are not known for, it is doing the same thing over and over again, they’d much rather dive into the unknown. Remember that making a mistake doesn’t mean you’ve failed, it just means you’ve discovered that one path doesn’t work, a valuable lesson that will serve you well in the future.

Relationship between art and creativity

Art is a powerful tool for stimulating your creativity. Why is this? Well because art, regardless of the discipline, helps you to achieve all those things we just mentioned. To start with, dedicating a part of your time to an artistic activity helps you to break with routine, free your mind and immerse yourself in your own thoughts. This state of “relaxation” is also necessary to help you think calmly and fluidly. Rarely do creative ideas emerge from a stressed mind.

Another point to bear in mind is that, if you think about it, there is no one right way to represent an idea or a state of mind. If that were the case, all paintings, sculptures and films would be exactly the same. Looking for your own way to interpret something that you want to convey is without a doubt helpful for stimulating creativity, bringing you closer to a unique and original way of being and communicating. Art is the perfect way to convey your own emotions, so get stuck in!

Furthermore, learning about art history, how it evolved and how different artists have innovated and created throughout history can also be very inspiring, opening up new horizons and helping you to become more creative in your daily life. Great!

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”

This famous Einstein quote could not be more accurate. At the end of the day, creativity is a skill that our mind uses to come up with innovative solutions to issues that no-one else has managed to resolve before. And it is in this process that intelligence can really have some fun.

If you’d like to become more creative, take advantage of all the benefits that art offers for developing your creativity in a fun, interesting and inspiring way.
