Are you one that believes that creativity can be learned? I am among that group. Always on the lookout for awesome examples of the topics I write about. And always trying to keep an open mind. Today I will share the best example of learning creativity I have ever seen.
A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.
– Frank Zappa
This is the example of Paul Smith and his typewriter art. And note that Paul is not any ordinary learner of creativity or art for that matter. You see, Paul has suffered from cerebral palsy for most of his life. Quite crippling for Paul. Here is an inspiring video that tells the story of Paul and his creativity. It is only 4 minutes and well worth your time.
What did you think of the video? Paul Smith and his creativity are awesome, aren’t they? Demonstrates that contrary to what most people believe, creativity is not limited to a specific segment of the population. It can be taught, nurtured, and enhanced. It is not genetically limited to the gifted ones of the population. Creativity is not a talent most people are born with. It is more like an action drive. Do you think Paul Smith has an action drive? I certainly do.
