Evolving as an Artist

Many people when asked if they are an artist seem afraid to answer, "Yes, I am." As if by stating that you are will put some kind of pressure on you to perform or create art on the spot. Since I work with children each day, I am amazed by their response to this same question. It is rare for any of my students to say that they are not artists. Picasso once stated," Every child is an artist, the trouble is how to remain one once they've grown up." This blog is to give you some reassurance that "Yes, you are an artist and you evolve and grow each time you sit down to create.

There are several ways to enhance this evolution. First....believe and call yourself an artist! Picasso is the perfect example. He always told everyone that he was "greatest artist that ever lived." Perhaps it was a self fulfilling prophecy, but he actually became one. It all started at three years old when he picked up a nail and scratched a drawing on a wall in his parent's home. Instead of being upset, both of his parents praised his artwork, showed friends and encouraged him. By age 13, he was so talented in creating realistic art, his father, an art teacher by trade, gave him all of his supplies and stated you are so much better than I am. Check out the portrait he did of his mother at this age by googling Pablo Picasso images. In contrast, an abstract portrait he painted at age 67, looks extremely childlike. An onlooker may think he had no formal training at all. With this in mind, realize that you are also on a continuum of evolution as an artist.

I chuckle when friends say to me...your artwork has changed over the years. Shouldn't it? It would be unusual if I was still drawing the bubbly cartoon characters I did as a child. Here are so dos and don't to help you find your identity as an artist.

*Ask yourself...what is my style? It's okay if it changes over time.

*Start with a subject you prefer, and don't be afraid to change.

*Do something that doesn't come easy for you. Draw,Paint or Create it more than once.

*Research and find artists you admire-mimick their style...and make it your own by adapting it.

*Surround yourself with other artists-you grow so much by osmosis

*Paint or Draw concepts that are important to you. The message will be stronger if you believe in it.

*Don't create...worrying "will it sell" Paint without a care!

*Good art doesn't match your sofa, Create without a purpose.

*Be true to yourself...paint for you! Not others.

*Go beyond labels...your style may be a combination of genres.

I hope this gives you something to think about. I am not sure exactly where I am on my evolution, there seems to be so much more to learn. Good luck on your journey!
