Advice Given
By Sawyer
On Creativity
The barriers which stand in the
way of creative activity for college
students can be overcome only by
the students themselves, Charles
Sawyer, director of the University
art museum, said.
Speaking yesterday at the an-
nual Phi Beta Kappa banquet,
Sawyer described these barriers as
"existing departmental demands"
and a closely regulated concentra-
tion schedule.
The busy undergraduate activity
both in and out of classes is also a
subtle influence against the use of
leisure time for creative activity.
This activity "follows the pat-
tern and tempo of living in the
outside world and destroys the
opportunity and the incentive for
those precious moments of con-
templation and constructive activi-
ty which ought to be the hallmark
of the educated man," he empha-
"All these pressures are within
the control of tle individual,"
sawyer continued, "even the eco-
nomic demands which force so
many into part-time employment
will not deter those who are really
determined to explore beyond the
realm of their own particular in-
terest and specialization."
"We are not attempting to be-
come performing artists. We are
enlarging ourselves and developing
motor skills which when developed
can provide the basis for a pleas-
urable type of recreation and re-
laxation," the director remarked.
Sawyer is not implying that the
mere act of particiation, of sitting
down to piano, the easel or the
work bench will in some miracu-
lous way open new vistas and
sharpen intuitive faculties.
Discovering the type of experi-
ence which is stimulating becomes
part of the creative act, and "the
willingness to try, childlike and
naive as it may seem, may pro-
vide a key for the solution," he
