A World of Art, Eighth Edition – Henry Sayre

How do artists explore the process of creativity? (page 10 of text)
The process of creativity is, in large part, the artist’s attempt to think critically. Being creative is innately human, but not everyone has the desire or ability to be an artist. The artist uses observation, imagination, and interpretation to create images or objects that answer these critical questions. Artists must be willing to explore ideas that might be challenging and allow that the result will sometimes be unexpected. Art is not simply the result of a step-by-step process. Instead, artists have to be open to discovering something new through their work.
