This collage is based on pieces from a Philadelphia Museum of Art t-shirt that I've had since high school! I cut up the frieze and pediments and put the words on them after considering the artists featured in the museum. I know that I can't be the only artist that gets pangs of doubt. So fretting artists---here is your reminder! All great things begin small.
Since every journey does indeed begin with the first step, does that therefore mean that people who travel many steps down the road of art all become artists? Practice making perfect? Or is every person born an artist and they just loose it along the way? I've been preparing for a fun demo to do with my son's cub scouts den (art elective.. yeah!) and I want to bring home the point to these young minds that I believe that every person is indeed born an artist. That "drawing a straight line" is why rulers were invented and that stick figures are to drawing as crawling is to walking- important! The lesson here is to keep at it. The more you do it, the better you get. And if you lost it along the way, pick up a pencil and start again.
