Members of the GFWC/Ohio Women’s Club of Wintersville gained some insight on the creative process when they welcomed Gerald Van Scyoc as the guest speaker at the Feb. 20 meeting held at St. Florian Hall in Wintersville.
A Wheeling native, Van Scyoc got interested in art during high school and went on to study art and graphic design. Oil painting, he said, is his favorite medium.
Beyond paints and brushes, though, any kind of creativity is a good thing, in Van Scyoc’s estimation. There’s room for creativity in most any activity, from cooking to household improvement projects, from cards to scrapbooking.
“To me creativity is something to be open to, to allow yourself to be inspired, and to put it into whatever you do,” he said.
