What is always important is that we take the opportunity to express the artist within and to understand and support the artists in our lives. And when we make the choice to criticize we need to be honest enough with ourselves to understand from where the criticism arises.

For the art that is created is an expression of the interior landscape of the person who created the art and there is no criticism of that expression that does not become a criticism of the human being.

Resources to find your inner artist:

Below are a few of links that we think are helpful if you are thinking about exploring your creative side.  If you know of other good resources let us know and we’ll post those links here as well.

Paint something:

Bob Burridge is an internationally acclaimed artist who teaches art in a way that allows you to look at your own work and develop along the lines you choose for yourself.  And as he says: “It is stress-free, but be warned: you could wind up with too much enthusiasm for painting.” Bob’s workshop schedule includes classes all over the US. And his initial “Loosen Up” workshop is a great way to find your creative side no matter what medium you want to work in.

Find your inner troubador:

Although this is not a link to lessons, it’s a link to song from one of my absolute favorite musicians, David Wilcox about the song that won’t shut up until he gets it out of his head.  So if a song is really struggling to get out of your head, find a local guitar teacher and find your inner troubador!  Then post your cover on David’s page! And remember that the right teacher for you will make you feel very good about yourself!

“We always get exactly what we want. However, we are not aware of most of what we want. To make matters even more challenging, most of us are not even aware that we are unaware of wanting all kinds of things we aren’t conscious of. That is why there is so much disparity between what we think we want and what we actually get…”
