Tip: Plan your project in detail on paper first. Design it to scale, on graphing paper and in pencil so that you can redesign and correct mistakes easily.
Our artistic drives and instincts often extend past paint, canvas, paper, and charcoal. As artists, it is our job to expose ourselves to all forms of creative expression in order to expand our creative lives. Challenge your creativity by taking on an artistic experiment that stimulates more than your vision sense: let's add a new sensory dimension by exploring sound in art.
Nothing stimulates creativity like a big, playful collection of tools that you love to use, and that are right at your fingertips. Imagine being a kid again, and you have a huge toy box filled with every toy you ever wanted. That is a wonderful way to feel when you walk into your studio to create, so let's cultivate a studio full of tools that are fun to use.
Art does not exist solely in the visual, the painting or composed image, a song, or a performance. Art can be in places you don't expect: how your grandmother set a table, the way light catches in a certain room at a certain time of day, the smell of something that sparks a memory. The idea that our very lives can be, and are, a work of art is an important thought to ponder. It then begs the question, how can we create more artistic lives?
