1. EYES OF A CHILD:
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
-- Pablo Picasso
We all made art as children. So why do grownups stop?
Art is therapeutic. It releases the state of innocence where everything is possible.
Let art return you to the kindergarten of your soul.
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.
It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
-- Albert Einstein
The preeminent scientist of our age -- Einstein -- understood that human experience transcends what can be observed and measured.
He believed that art ignites a desire to explore ineffable mysteries that at first can only be grasped by the metaphors and images of poets and artists.
“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
-- Vincent Van Gogh.
Our dreams are the headwaters of springs of life.
4. YOUR GIFT:
“Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.”
-- Pope John Paul II
It's worth developing your creative skills.
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
-- Leonardo da Vinci
- Take time to develop your creative instincts.
- Make a simple sketch, work on a fine art piece or write a poem or song.
- You'll be making the world a more beautiful place.
