Creativity School

Aug 5, 2019

How do we finally let go of perfectionism and experience the magic that unfolds when we create with complete freedom?

This week on Creativity School, we dig into how perfectionism is poison and not something to be proud of with Carrie Brummer. Carrie is a visual artist and has had work displayed in The Smithsonian and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. She’s also an art educator, and the founder of Artist Strong, a community that supports people by giving them the permission to be creative and the tools to develop their unique voice.

We talk about how it took a life threatening health experience for Carrie to finally let go of the need to create art that was perfect, and in the process discover the incredible things that can happen in your life and work when you let go and create without pressure. Carrie shares actionable steps we can take to release our need for perfection, how to let go of the myth of talent, and how to trust your intuition when creating your work.
