Creativity Cure 6

  • Make inspiration cards. Buy a stack of plain note cards and whenever an idea or inspiration strikes, write it down. At the end each day look over your cards and see if there are any patterns or paths you should take with your creativity.

Berea Arts Fest

For those of you in the Cleveland area this weekend, the Berea Arts Fest returns. I missed the Fest last year because I was in LA, so I am looking forward to experiencing it for the first time this Sunday.

Unlike other area arts festivals that simply display work by professional artists, the Berea Arts Fest focuses on promoting involvement in the arts and includes art by students and visually impaired artists as well.

You can also participate in a community art project or make something in the family art area. It sounds like a great opportunity for both adults and kids to explore their creativity.

  • See you there! Sunday, September 9 from 10 AM - 5 PM.
