What is creativity and what does it even mean to be creative?
Well according to wikipedia, creativity is the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work – synonyms include inventiveness, imagination, innovation, originality, individuality
Many people claim that they were not born with creativity, when in fact, I personally find that creativity is a process that has to be established through the experiences and the influences in my everyday life. One may possess an artistic eye, but the ability to be creative is far more than a birthright. The ability to make art is often associated with creativity; thus the most significant aspect of creativity is often overlooked: creativity is a form of expression. An expression that can be established by anyone and everyone, as long as they have the ability to experience and interact with their imagination and social context. You may not even realize that you’re currently in a state of creativity at this very moment. Every one of us are contributing to the creation of the cultures we participate in.
