Define Yourself As An Artist
July 27, 2010
Do you struggle to see yourself as an artist? I know I did for a long time. I felt that because I didn’t have any “formal training” I couldn’t be classified as an artist. Other people saw me differently though. They classified me as an artist due to my passion, my creativity, my experience, and the work I was producing. What does it mean to be an artist anyway?
Here are some definitions of artist from the Web:
A person whose creative work shows sensitivity and imagination.
- “An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.” –Andy Warhol
“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” –Pablo Picasso
