True Creativity is Playful, Imaginative, Spontaneous
Creativity is about solving problems ── finding new solutions to old ways of being, thinking, feeling, and interacting. It is an act of modification, alteration, improvisation and transformation.
During atypical of Chinese calligraphy with creative ideas workshop, instructed by Elis, she embodies the characteristics in her creative process with mixed media including rearrangements and imprints techniques, combining them with paint and drawing.

In Art making and creative process, you are asked to use your creativity to make original and imaginative artwork. It is not an imitative experience in which you are asked to follow a series of directions, copy an image, or learn how to be technically efficient. Successful replicating or duplicating a drawing may provide you with a sense of satisfaction, but it does not take you through a creative process in which you discover and develop your own personal and authentic imagery. Working with your own image-making process and taking the risk of expressing yourself without judgement connects you to your creative potential.
