Creative Discussion – Which Is Better, Being Taught or Learning?

With the luck we are having engaging the creative community here at Fuel Your Creativity, we see no reason to not continue the on-going dialog with our online friends and colleagues. The creative discussions are proving a hit, sometimes spawning posts beyond the final discussion wrap-up. And in this next installment of queries about the creative process we need to explain the question a bit. You may think that being taught and learning are the same thing, but for the sake of this discussion, learning is related to the knowledge we seek and teach ourselves. The process we develop of our own accord, not simply the process we are taught by someone else.


Remember this is an open discussion with the creative community, so feel free to chime in below in the comments to keep the flow of dialog moving. After leaving the discussion open for the month, we will be compiling some of the responses into a post on the topic at hand, so be sure to keep checking in on the talk as things develop.
