Creativity Prompts

Prompts are a great place to get out of a block or rut in your art no matter your art form. Whether you are looking for a new topic, new idea, or simply bored; a fun exercise can be a way to get the creative juices flowing!

Sometimes all the options in the world of colors, styles, topics, and more can get a little daunting. A creativity prompt can help an artist by offering constraints while also providing freedom. It can help an artist focus on one problem and discover a new depth of creativity inside.
