Intern Katrina shares some uplifting quotes to encourage the artist in all of us!
"Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist"- René Magritte
"If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint"- Edward Hopper
"Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing"- Georgia O'Keefe
"Creativity takes courage"- Henri Matisse
"Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art"- Andy Warhol
In this confusing time of things starting to open up and people still being hesitant of interaction, it's crucial that we stay calm, and for a lot of artists, that means to keep making art.
Some day in the distant future, this time will be talked about in history classes, and we want this time period to be remembered by from more than the death count and the restrictions from the lockdown. Let's make sure that the history talked about in this time includes art. Like Hopper said above, 'If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint', so take your emotions and thoughts about all this and turn it in to a story through art that we can always remember. Show the world what's going on and tell it through the power of your own hand and tools!
Never stop creating! Make sure your voice is heard and preserved. Create your fear, your pain, and your love! Speak your mind through art and none shall be forgotten ❤️.
