Calling All Artists!

How many times have you been told…
– that your art isn’t “necessary”,
– that it’s just a hobby and you should treat it like one,
– that you’re “a little bit off”,
– that you should be more “normal”,
– that you should consider getting a real job?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve grown tired of hearing stuff like that.

If you’re an artist, you’re the way you are because you were BORN that way.

“Artist” isn’t a job.
It’s not something you learn in a school.
It’s not something you become.

It’s not what you do.
It’s a singular way of being in the world.

Artist, you have a beautiful gift and the world needs you, now more than ever!
This is your call to arms.

  1. Nice to hear from you again, Jim. The reminders in the video are a meaningful and useful path forward for many of us, myself included. Now I just need to get back into the thick of things.

  2. I have finally taken the time to review your video and emails during this challenging time….thank you so much for your thoughts. We just have to remember there is so much waiting to be discovered about ourselves and the joy we can have just freely expressing being creative:cooking, singing, writing a few words, creating great visuals. Celebration can happen anywhere and anytime. Looking forward to your ongoing teaching.
