LET’S TALK ABOUT ART

When you were a kid, you did many things without putting too much thought in to it and only the pure pleasure of having fun was the driving force of your endless creativity.  Then life came along and years of pressure from adults, peers, society and who knows what else, started dictating what was pretty, what was cool and what was real “art”. Since then, let me ask you, when was the last time you called yourself an artist? 

 

 

Art can mean many different things for each person, depending on their background, culture or state of mind, but today I want to call your attention to art as the ultimate unique human experience that it is.  


Since the beginning of time, human beings have been creating things with their hands. They have been using art to keep their heritage alive, tell stories and heal the soul.  Nowadays, art is often misunderstood and ignored as a powerful transformational tool.  The emphasis is put on technique, materials and end-product but we forget that what truly counts is the process.  


You don’t need to be a scholar, a talented painter or a gifted artisan to benefit from making art. You can do it at home, with friends and in the time you allow yourself to be a kid again making a mess and enjoying it.  Make it a point to try something new this week… and let me know how it went! (send pictures too!) 


Besos,
