I just completed the winter semester of the painting class I teach in Atlanta. Adult students sometimes get frustrated because in most areas in life we want the quick answer or solution. But learning to paint is a lifelong journey. I have a plaque in my studio with the quote ” I am still learning” which reportedly came from Michelangelo when he was 87. I share that with my students- if he was still learning at 87- no wonder we are still learning. If you take the attitude that there’s an endless amount of new learning and discovery available to you in art, it becomes and an enlivening, exciting experience. There’s no greater sense of aliveness than learning and creating. You are in the moment and experience the joy of growing.
Happy Creating- whatever you choose to do!
