I’ve never been one for mindfulness or guided meditation but recently I discovered a number of tools hidden away on my iPad Pro that really helped calm me down and focus on my art. These are simple ways to use existing features and some apps that can help you focus and get a little more creative.
While you can get the best mindfulness apps targeted at relieving stress what I’ve discovered is there are everyday tools on iPad that can help boost creativity without really having to spend much money or invest too much time. These are everyday apps that have hidden functions that can help clear your mind and improve self expression.
Don’t just take my word for it, I met up with artist Kirsty LaToya (opens in new tab) recently who uses some of these tools and techniques to focus on what she wants to say in her art. LaToya became a household name when her self-portrait, created on an iPad using Procreate, went viral. The painting was created as a method to express her emotions following the passing of her mother, a digital canvas to focus and draw out her feelings.
