Finding time for Art with a full time Job!!!

Finding time for art and having a full time job can be dis heartening . Even though I have

 a job teaching art ,I sometimes don't have time to create ,do or make,art.

Here are some suggestion for creating time for art:


THE MAGIC WORD-CREATING.

Be creative by making a schedule for your art. If you have a full time job , I sure 

time keeps you from creating art, sit down and make a schedule  to have a time when you

 can do art. Tell everyone that you will be working at a specific time or day.

Graciously ask to not be disturbed.  I know, you will always have a friend or

 family member with some kind of crisis,but don't allow them to take up your time for art.

Remember you have a creative need and it must be fed. If it is not fed you

will not be the artist you were meant to be.

YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU CREATE:

You  might think painting shoes for   friends is your time for art. Or making a yard

sign or mural for an organization is serving your creative need. NO, Stop and

think about this. Once you start doing everybodys art , you will loose your individual

creativity and your art soul will not grow. You will not be molded or

created into the artist you dreamed of becoming. You are doing thier art.

Now don't get me wrong , If you want to be a selling artist sometimes is it neccessary

to do their art. However until you find your technique and market don't sell your

self short by  creating the current art craze.


REMEMBER ITS OKAY TO THINK FOR YOURSELF.

Remember it is okay to take time for yourself. Do art you want to do.

And Create  and  search out new venues. Think of you artist creativity as a child

that has to be motivated, pampered and encouraged to

express. adventure and explore thier abilities to exist.

ENJOY YOUR GIFT.Blawson
