Either way, we do it, because it's the best way we know to cope. You don't have to have a diagnosis to join the community. You don't have to wear all black. You don't e

  • Unlocking the Artist In You



    Anyone can be an artist! It’s just a question about how you can become one. Some people give up too easily, admitting to themselves that they have, and will never have any artistic talent at all. If you are one of those people, why let yourself join the mediocre crowd? Here are some tips on how to unlock the artist in you.


    1. Take a leap of faith.

    Trust in yourself and believe that you can do it. One fact you should know is that forty percent of today’s artistic people involved in fashion, drawing, painting, music and acting; started from mistake after mistake. When you dare to fail in the hopes of producing a work of art, you are learning from mistakes and daring to achieve at the same time.

    1. Grease up your elbows

    No doubt about it. If you are reading this article, then you were not born with an artistic sense. You can work on it though! Practice makes perfect. It’s not even a secret that the key to an artist’s success is refining one’s skills in the arts. The more you practice, the more you will become better at it.

    1. Criticize yourself

    Now if you really aren’t producing outputs worthy of the Louvre, do not hide your work from the world. Compare it against the better pieces that exist out there. No, the purpose is not to torment yourself on how badly you suck. Rather, you have to find out what’s wrong with your work. Analyze how other people’s work; seem to be better compared to yours and aim to correct that next time.

    1. Get inspired

    Hey, it’s not a cliché. Expose yourself to different things that might give you ideas, or fire you up to start a project you can finish. You may not know what can inspire you, so it is best if you watch a variety of movies with different themes: love, comedy, drama, musical, thrillers. You may also visit museums and watch shows. You can get inspiration from reading books or blogs. Then taking a break and retreating into nature also has a calming and refreshing feeling to any budding artist.

    1. Become open-minded

    Ever heard of a real artist who is pessimistic and judgmental?  This perhaps is the single most art-crippling characteristic of a person trying to be artistic. Learn it from history. Take for example, the Greeks who had been documented to have contributed so many works of art. At the peak of their brilliance, the Greeks were known for being open minded. When you can be broad minded, you can see the world with maturity, understanding and appreciation and anything can inspire you. So scratch out bad habits. In your quest of unlocking the artist within you, … being closed minded is a definite no no.


    1. Do your best always

    Lastly, do you best, always. Don’t start a project half heartedly. And do not quit too fast when things don’t go your way. You must also accept the level your capabilities can reach. Not everyone is destined for greatness such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Beethoven. Each of us has a talent in the arts which we can nurture and develop for our own appreciation and that of others. So go on, do you best and unlock that artistic inclination from within.
