Art Is Natural
Sight is not a talent and for most of us it's a natural ability, describing what we see is a learned art. Drawing, Painting and expressing ourselves through Art is a matter of of choice. Anyone can learn to paint; draw and make art. With the right attitude, a nurturing art space and the proper Art education, anyone can be an inspiring artist.
Talent does not belong to a select few but is inherent in all of us. Talent cannot be described as a singular element but a complete set of factors coming together, it is when life and art blends into each other. It is a matter of using the skills acquired and applying them correctly. It is also about the love for the path taken and the passion to endure it. Together with each individual's ability to express their own personalities in reaching out to people and communicating through their works, this is when talent happens.
Talent is first, an act of will and of the journey that is taken and using it to appreciate art, culture and life in others.
