Boost Creativity by Copying ArtCopying old master drawings is a time-honoured way that artists learned their craft whether in a studio or art school. This is something that I always encourage people to do and so I was delighted to read about a recent study that showed that copying other people’s art can boost your own creativity.
Isaac Kaplan of Artsy.net reports on a recent study by Kentaro Ishibashi and Takeshi Okada, an architect and a professor at the University of Tokyo in Japan.
The authors suggest that copying other art pushes you ‘beyond the familiar’ and opens up your imagination. It also encouraged participants to consider other the form and style of the artist they were copying – as well as their own.
‘“Good” copying is not simply about getting the line and form correct, but questioning why an artist worked a certain way, what they were thinking. Ultimately, this exercise generated new ideas.’
