Everyone can be an Artist

When we think of 'art' we normally think of a painter, applying the brush on a canvas. But any person, having a creative skill in any activity, can be an artist.

The way a person talks to others, or how one writes, can be a creative expression. The ways a person can express his or her 'art' is infinite.

Focus on The Act of Creation

Find out what you enjoy, what you loved as a kid, or what engages you, and do that. It can be finger painting, baking, cooking, collaging, oil painting, weaving, writing screenplays, anything that doesn't' make you tired while you do it.

The act of creation is itself a reward, and going for what you love doing without any expectations or stress makes the real art come out.
