Here are a few ways to practice creativity in your home, school and office:

  1. Draw everyday.
  2. Undo your drawing; don't label your marks with words just yet. 
  3. Have paper, pens, pencils around to pick up and use. Tablets are amazing, but to humans the hand is the first technology!
  4. Take a drawing class (locally or remotely) to develop your skills and become more confident.
  5. Using a white board, visualize your day by drawing it out.
