Creativity In Motion is on hiatus for a few more months. In the interim, we are publishing an encore of our favorite episode from Season One of the show. It features painter and pioneering educator Dr. Leo Twiggs.
We think Dr. Twiggs's story illustrates perfectly what it means to be creative. In a practical sense, being creative is how we solve problems and overcome obstacles. As you will hear in our conversation with Dr. Twiggs, he has overcome many obstacles. Along the way he gained tremendous insights about art, including not only how to make art, but why you should make art.
We recorded this episode sitting in Dr. Twiggs's home studio in Orangeburg, South Carolina, among many canvasses and finished pieces that were being sent to various galleries in the southeast. We had an incredible visit with him and were fascinated with his stories about how he came to paint the way he does.
We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.
