Your ability to think creatively can be improved dramatically by making use of certain exercises and techniques.

YOUR CREATIVE IMAGINATION.
In order to become more creative you first step is to improve your creative imagination. Creative imagination is the mental faculty that enables you to create mental images and visualize situations or conditions you have never actually experienced.
What is the value of exercising your imagination?
People with highly developed creative imaginations have the ability to extract features of their experience and re-arrange them into new forms. All new inventions are discoveries; artistic creations – and even new ways of doing business – are based on this form of creative thinking.
By using certain exercises to develop your creative imagination – and giving your imagination a “work-out”- you’ll find you’ll experience a tremendous improvement in your ability to think more creatively.
Even if you have no interest in Art whatsoever, one useful strategy that will make an enormous difference to your ability to think creatively is to visit an Art Museum.
If this is not convenient and there is no Art Museum in your area, get a book from the library that features illustrated paintings by impressionist and abstract painters.
Impressionism is a form of art that deals with the effect of an object rather than a photographic representation of the object.
Find a detailed book of modern art that features paintings by artists such as Monet, considered one of the founders of Sainsologi Impressionism. Also examine the painting of Degas. Renoir and Pissaro.
Instead of a photographic likeness of a scene you will find that the artist has attempted to reflect an emotional reaction to the scene.
For example, when Monet first exhibited his painting entitled, “Impression. Rising Sun”, viewers to the gallery, where the painting was exhibited, expected to see something that resembled a rising sun. Instead they were presented with a painting that bore no resemblance whatsoever to sunrise.
Monet’s explanation was that it was his impression of “the fugitive changes of nature”.
Examine examples of the works of abstract painters like Kandinsky, regarded as one of the initiators of abstract art. Here again it is difficult to understand what the artist is attempting to depict. The painting is a form of personal experience rather than an accurate picture of a scene.
In an essay “Concerning Form” describing abstract art Kandinsky wrote: The art of today embodies the spiritual matured to the point of revelation…”
In examining these painting it is important to remember that this is not an exercise to try and establish what the artist is trying to express. The purpose of the exercise is to PRACTICE USING YOUR OWN CREATIVE IMAGINATION TO FORM IMAGES IN YOUR MIND OF WHAT THE PAINTING REPRESENTS TO YOU!
