Day 3: Creativity

If you are on Facebook, I have set up An Attitude of Gratitude Journal Challenge group where you can share your thoughts on the daily theme or link your blog or add a photo.
Originally I wasn't going to have a Facebook group but there are a few people who are following along who don't have blogs or Flickr accounts themselves or who are making lists but not doing any art so I thought I would give a forum for that.  The group is open for everyone so do join in.
Starting Point: 
What does creativity mean to you?
This is an interesting article.
How do you express your creativity?
What  in particular are you thankful for in the creative areas of your life?

Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.     Edward de Bono

Bible verse:
He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them skilled workers and designers.    Exodus 35:35

Do schools kill creativity?

Technique Challenge:
Draw freehand 
using any of the media you own - a pencil, a coloured pencil, a crayon, a paintbrush and paint.
