“Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative” by Austin Kleon
Think you lack creativity? Have you thought that being creative was something only a lucky few were “born with?”
Writer and artist Austin Kleon tells us that, like science, creativity is something built upon like a snowball. Artistry comprises ideas that have been “swiped” and reconstructed into something that is a bit different and looked upon in a fresh way.
Kleon encourages us to take inspiration from our surroundings and other artists to create something that will inspire others.
Marie Garcia is the Crestview Public Library's assistant library director.
