When working as an arts facilitator, I often work with people who have never allowed themselves to be artists. People are often very quick to share “But I can’t draw to save my life”. My reply to that is “Can you keep a secret?….nor can I”.
A friend and colleague shared a brilliant explanation about our persecutions of art in a Zoom call.
Somebody said in the group that they often find art intimidating. And his reply was “Think about the process rather than what art means”.
I love this phrase and politely asked if I could use it .
