Blog Assignment #3

For this blog post I am going to give a summary/response to "Timmmmyboy's" blog post "We Are All Artist".

In Timmmyboy's blog post he talks about how you don't have to be a designer or an art major to be artist. Art is very subjective meaning that while it may not be considered art to one person it could be considered genius to someone else. In his post Timmmyboy says "creativity is not inherited". What he means by that statement is that you have to learn to be an artist. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and time. He says that people who seem to just be naturally gifted with creativity probably grew up in a household that brought about creative thinking. For instance, the individuals dad may have been in a band while the mother was a writer. It's from growing up in that kind of stimulating environment that spawned the creativity within that individual.

Another one of my favorite statements from the blog post was when he said "when we are forced with challenges that we are uncomfortable with, we are most creative."

I totally agree with this statement because it's during those moments that we have to think outside the box because the norm isn't going to get the job done successfully. For me personally, while it is very difficult to find solutions at first to those difficult challenges. I feel that it's during that time I can think the most creatively and sometimes come up with my best work.

Overall, I was really able to connect with a lot of the points that Timmmyboy was making in his blog post. Art doesn't have to be a masterpiece like the Mona Lisa or Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Art can be something as simple as a simple drawing of anything. However, in order to become a really good artist you are going to have to work on you craft everyday to master it.
