As we talk about Creativity together this week, we will be considering how to apply Creativity to recognizing and using our existing talents. Our in-class discussion for this week follows below:
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” — Maya Angelou (author, poet)
There is an untold amount of creativity and potential inside each of us. We won’t ever use it all up. Being creative doesn’t just mean creating art projects or stories. Each of us have specific set of talents, and your creativity is healthiest when you apply it to areas where you are talented. Being creative doesn’t have to mean doing something altogether new. It can be about approaching the same tasks in a different way. Look at the things you enjoy doing — the things you are passionate about — and find a way to apply your creativity.
1) What is something you think you are talented at?
2) What is something that you really enjoy doing?
3) Who do you know who is talented and creative at something?
