About Our Prompt #3


by Julie Ann Shahin, Studio Tangie Social Media Team

Have you ever thought about where your strengths lie in creativity? Are you good at visualizing things or are you good at working with your hands? Are you good with color or are you a natural musician? Do words come easily to you or are you a genius at taking photographs? C’mon, it doesn’t hurt to brag a little, we’re all friends here.

Michael R. Hathaway outlines strong points of Visual, Auditory, Emotional, and Taste/Smell Creativity in his article Developing Your Creative Abilities: Your Creative Strengths. This article could help you identify some of your strengths.

Creative Strengths


Creativity: Thinking of novel and productive ways to conceptualize and do things.

Appreciating Art: appreciating beauty, excellence, and skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to  everyday experience.

Visualization: I visualize in color, in pictures, 2D or 3D. I can see something and visualize a new design for it.

Dance: I feel the emotion and soul of music, especially when I was a dancer. I let the music decide & move me when I was choreographing steps.

“Curious about everything. You are always asking questions, and you find all subjects and topics fascinating. You like exploration and discovery.”

Quote: The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that……… it will happen.  Carl Ally,executive producer

Accomplishments: Interior Design Degree from Michigan State University, Published nationally and internationally, Teaching
