How To Make This Christmas More Creative

Something as simple as Christmas lights can be an expression of creativity.
Have you seen those houses that have whole light shows?  

I love art and artists!  I enjoy every form of art.  I love, love, love, (did I say LOVE) music and have great respect for those who have mastered those skills to a point where they can express themselves creatively.  (just like any artist and art form)  Because I know the work it takes to master a set of skills in the visual arts, and because I've dabbled at playing the piano and singing in choirs, I am always in awe of the creativity behind a musical composition or vocal arrangements and so on.  Below is a link to some pretty creative guys and a piano for your viewing pleasure :)

The arts bring a fullness to life that I think we can take for granted.  I gave myself and now you, the challenge to find ways to make art a more intentional part of the holidays.  How can you do that?  Its as simple as buying a new Christmas CD.  Below is a list I've made.  See if any of these ideas hit a note with you.  Any ideas I missed?  Do you have any creative ideas?  Leave a comment on my blog or Facebook page MichelleMorrisArt so we can share ideas and creativity this Holiday Season!    

I saw this on Facebook and wanted to share some Holiday Cheer as well as some pretty creative guys and a piano!

Some Creative Ideas for this Christmas:
  • create a painting and use it to make your own Christmas Cards
  • gather a group of friends and go caroling
  • have a party and invite others to bring a gift to exchange they made (a twist on the white elephant) 
  • find a new way to dress your tree that reflects your personality
  • attend the Nutcracker preformed by your local ballet troupe
  • attend the symphony's holiday performance
  • for those with snow: have you ever though of a snow man as sculpture?  Build a creative snowman!
  • do a visual journal for advent 
  • write a song or some poetry with the holiday theme
  • take your camera and shoot your favorite aspect of the holidays in a creative way
The list is as endless as we are creative!   Have a creative holiday season and a happy (creative) Thursday!
