Creativity & Art Corner

This space is dedicated to imagination.

Creativity is a tough thing to define. I like this definition: the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination.

Creativity is associated most strongly with (but not limited to) art. When I think of art, I think of visual art (drawings/illustrations/paintings), music, and writing. But if someone introduces themselves as an 'artist', I would automatically assume they mean visual art.

The definition of "art" varies wildly, but a general description would be an idea of imaginative or technical skill stemming from human agency and creation. Agency refers to the thoughts and actions taken that express someone's individual power. It's the capacity for us to make choices and to impose those choices on the world.
