Thinking through Creative Arts simply just mean looking at the entire world in a creative manner, that allows you to see the meaning and beauty in the smallest things that we didn’t notice before hand.
Within the first lecture there was talk of what it means to be an artist.
Being an artist mean actually ‘doing’ and following through on those ideas that pop into our minds at any given time.
And though there will be those time where your work fails, it does not mean that it is not still art.
An artist must fail in order to succeed in their form of work.
I completely understand this concept, and in those moments of failure try to remember this.
Because when you are confronted by your own failures, you begin to question yourself and your work.
Not just in art but sometimes in life.
But failure is part of the process, and we need to fail in order to learn, not just about ourselves, but the world around us.
Within the world of creative arts, it is about seeing the world in a sensitive or even over sensitive form to really understand how the world may seem, compared to the structures society has created for us.
– French impressionists showed the world that they painted the way the light really is in day to day lives, especially in France.
Picasso spent most of this child life and teenage life painting extraordinary paintings that were like how an experienced adult would paint. Then he decided for the rest of his adult life he would try to paint more like a child would.
Children have the more purest way of thinking and feeling.
Even when they draw something like a person, and it isn’t an object or look like a person at all, but just a coloured scribble, that is how the child felt, and that is what he sees.
As we all get older, whilst growing up from being a child however, the way that society has shaped our minds begin to take place, and we begin to see the world through this structure we have been given.
Throughout our lives we have been surrounded in a structure that is hard to break out of, but if we begin to think sensitively towards the world, and through creative aspects we truly begin to see a different form that will change our minds and emotions forever.
