If you give a kindergartner a piece of paper and a box of crayons, she’ll know exactly what do with them. Give them to a teenager or an adult, and you’re likely to be met with a blank stare. Sadly, it seems as though the older a person gets, the more unlikely they are to consider themselves creative.
Guess what? You ARE creative, whether you think so or not. And in this interview, Austin Kleon shares valuable tips you can use to set yourself up to allow that creativity to shine, no matter who you are or what you do. Austin is the author of the best-selling book, “Steal Like An Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative.” Like Toto in the Wizard of Oz, Austin pulls back the curtain on the mythology of the artist, revealing that creativity is not pre-ordained from on high, but comes from incorporating some pretty basic principles that are accessible and applicable to everyone.
