Honesty as a Structurally Necessary Aspect of the Creative Process.
Doyle, Charlotte L.
This presentation focuses on honesty as an ingredient in the creative process of artists. Several suggestions resulted from this research: (1) the product of the creative process is about something; it has a referent, and this referent involves the artist's personal vision of world and self; (2) the honesty is not a recitation of factual reality but of an invented reality; (3) since there is a task and a goal, the creative process is a timely process; (4) the creative process is intentioned; honesty and truth are basic criteria; (5) the artists see honesty as more central than, for example, originality and craft; and (6) honesty for the artist involves a sincere commitment to a task, a willingness to face its requirements.
