One of the world's leading creative artists, choreographers, and creator of the smash-hit Broadway show, Movin' Out, shares her secrets for developing and honing your creative talents--at once prescriptive and inspirational, a book to stand alongside The Artist's Way and Bird by Bird. All it takes to make creativity a part of your life is the willingness to make it a habit. It is the product of preparation and effort, and is within reach of everyone. Whether you are a painter, musician, businessperson, or simply an individual yearning to put your creativity to use, The Creative Habit provides you with thirty-two practical exercises based on the lessons Twyla Tharp has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career. In "Where's Your Pencil?" Tharp reminds you to observe the world -- and get it down on paper. In "Coins and Chaos," she gives you an easy way to restore order and peace. In "Do a Verb," she turns your mind and body into coworkers. In "Build a Bridge to the Next Day," she shows you how to clean the clutter from your mind overnight. Tharp leads you through the painful first steps of scratching for ideas, finding the spine of your work, and getting out of ruts and into productive grooves. The wide-open realm of possibilities can be energizing, and Twyla Tharp explains how to take a deep breath and begin...… (mere)

Surely the real issue here is that the people have a fairly strict definition of what 'art' is. In the blue corner we have people who think that art must be a faithful rendition of a visual scene using traditional media (pencil, paint, marble etc...). In the red corner we have people who require that their art convey ideas. I know which group I belong to, but I see no sense in trying to convince others of my way of thinking. You might as well tell me that I'm wrong for not liking bananas. I ain't going to change my mind. As an afterthought - I'd be curious to know which 'corner' the people who agree with this sentiment belong to.

Different forms, styles or genres of art each have many different possible purposes. Conveying an idea or message can be one of them, sure. But to say that "If one has no message, skill - in art - is pointless.", shows your ignorance to several categories of art that display beauty, skill, function, or substance of some other kind. As an example, there are many forms of music that do not contain lyrics that may or may not convey an intended "message" but are beautiful arrangements nonetheless. These are still art.

Similarly, the code that runs this website can be considered a work of art but what message are its creators trying to convey? Indeed, and I'm not disagreeing with people out there, but unless someone else can label it as "art" then it cannot be sold to yet someone else as "art" - that other someone being the sort of person who is incapable of making their own judgment about whether they like something or not. All of this is a reflection on a wider dumbing down of culture that is the result of successive governments refusing to acknowledge the importance of the arts to wider society. An active artistic output is a hallmark of a healthy society. We don't have to agree about it, but we do need to have it available to us. Thus in a world where, to quote Oscar Wilde, "people know the price of everything and the value of nothing", it requires other people to tell us whether we should like something or not, or consider it art or not.

Twyla Tharp's life experiences are mostly dance-oriented. Not my cup of tea. ( )

cannot recommend this book enough. ( )

The writing isn't special, but it works. It isn't a slog, either. ( )

This is a pretty good book. Not necessarily the best of its type, but to be candid, I can’t be objective with this one because I’ve been a lifelong Twyla Tharp fan, have seen her company perform several times, think she’s a genius, so naturally I’ll be biased in favor of most things she would produce. So, just being honest. Still, that said, I DO think it’s a quality work that might appeal to many people, so definitely recommended. ( )

As a photographer I'm pretty sure I have at least a touch of creativity lurking inside me somewhere, but this book didn't help me find it. Maybe it will help you. ( )

In the end, there is no one ideal condition for creativity. What works for one person is useless for another. The only criterion is this: Make it easy on yourself.
Metaphor is the lifeblood of all art.
