Magicians are creators. Not only are the great magicians creators
of new methods and new routines but more importantly, they are
magical moments and memories that will last a lifetime for children
and adults alike.
Take a look at the definitions of "magic" and "create".
Mag-ic (maj'ik) n. 1. The art of producing illusions.
Cre-ate (kre-at') v. 1. To cause to come into being as something
At first glance they seem very similar (creating illusions/producing
and you might say that Creative Magic is an oxymoron. But the
definition of create
has a key word at the end, "unique." Too often in
magic we find ourselves
producing the exact same things as every other magician
has since the silk was invented.
Our goal at Creative Magic is not only to offer some fresh
to magic but to hopefully spark some creative juices in others,
