Daily Creativity: Sixty Exercises to Promote Creativity
What you'll learn
- Develop a habit for daily creativity
- Strengthen your drawing and observational skills
- Learn to see things differently
- Experiment with new techniques to find your style
- There are no prerequisites for this course. All ages and abilities are welcome!
Welcome to Daily Creativity! I’m Bebe Keith and I love to play. Here are sixty (YES, 60!!) fun daily activities that will get your creative juices flowing! Each activity takes only five minutes, but I encourage you to spend more time if you are inspired.
The creative exercises will help you see things differently, improve your drawing and observational skills and serve as a creative warm-up for your day. You will gain confidence, try new things, make mistakes, explore, develop your voice and search for your style.
Some activities are more instructional, but most are creative thinking and exploring activities that you and I both do. Feel free to spend as long as you like on the activities. This is for you. Do what feels right.
This course is good for all ages and abilities. Invite the whole family to join you! I encourage you to do one activity a day for sixty days. This is roughly the average time it takes to develop a new habit. To encourage this, I recommend doing the exercise at the same time every day if possible.
Five minutes isn’t much time, but you will find that it’s a great jumping off point to take it further if you desire. You could spend much more than that on every activity and I hope you will have days that allow the extra time to work further.
I’ve provided a resource list that you will download. Please print it out and put it somewhere visible. It tells what the activity is for each day and what supplies you will need. There is a video telling more about the basic supplies you can use.
When you finish this course, you can go through it again with different subjects, making it an ongoing resource for creativity. If you struggle to think of subjects, just google “art prompt lists” and then you’ll be all set to take the course again – with the prompts providing a twist!
Thanks so much. Now let’s start having some fun!
