Cool Resources

From time to time, we find great resources we share with each other… resources about being an artist– about the struggle, the blocks, the frustration, and the not giving up… resources about the business of being an artist… about other artists… and about having disabilities.

VIDEO:

A video about creating an acrylic colored ground or wash which supports the aesthetics of your painting.

 

The title is a bit insulting, but the video has good information about creating an acrylic wash which will support the chemistry of your painting.

 

Great video about how throwing a wrench (mess, difficulty, obstacles) into your comfortable process will likely lead to something brilliant.

 

A video for those of us who put artmaking off until we have time for it.  **Note** This video is in Korean with English subtitles.

 

This is a great video by Daniel Sax, inspired by another great video by Shiyang Liu, both featuring the inspirational words of Ira Glass. This video speaks to the artist who is either just beginning, or even an experienced artist who is beginning something new. We feel it also speaks to those who feel the creative urge but don’t pursue it, because they think “I’m not an artist.” Maybe they tried it once, and it was difficult, or it didn’t turn out the way they envisioned it.  But honestly, this video is great for ANYONE, artist or no, who is trying something new.
