Abstract

This arts-based research explores how limitations and constraints impact the creative problem-solving process. Analyzing creative problem-solving processes is used to gain an understanding of how creative thinkers navigate unique situations or obstacles. This research focuses on the deconstruction of nine creative artworks. A specific process for generating limitations is discussed producing a starting point for creative artistic development. This arts based research study relates to developing an understanding of how Cultivating Creative Problem-solving Through Limitations and Constraints impacts an individual’s philosophies while attempting to find a solution to a problem or task. If we utilize creative problem-solving techniques, we may be able to use constraints and limitations to foster skill development allowing us to reach goals and overcome obstacles. Limitations that are set before us can force us to make decisions and cultivate skills and creative talents. Limitations may also help us accelerate our skill development and turn us into powerful creative problem-solvers.
