What is the key that unlocks your creativity?

For some it can be a walk among nature, a sunset, meeting a new person, a conversation at a cafe. Or it can come from emotions in the other side of the spectrum, losing somebody, a breakup or depression. 

Some artists wait for inspiration to visit, while others work until they hit the aha! moment.

Some go through delirious moments of creation, and then jump to moments that nothing seems to come to mind. 

Or what about the moments when you have come to a creative block? 

What have helped you to come out of it? 

For this year challenge the SBDAC wants to know what is the key to your creativity and share it to the world and help inspire more fellow humans in search for a better world.

The rules are simple, To submit artwork for consideration, please follow these guidelines:

*Artists may submit up to FOUR pieces for consideration. ($30)

*All media is accepted, including sculpture. There are no size restrictions, so long as the piece will fit through standard doorways and is ready to display. (3-dimensional pieces must be display-ready, either free-standing or wall-hanging)
