Artistic Thoughts

I am a silent artist; the kind who will draw and paint but not speak or sing. I’ve never considered myself an “artist”, just someone who enjoyed art classes her whole life. I am definitely not a musician, or an actress, or a dancer, but I have never thought much about the other forms of art.

I have always viewed my writing style as more of an academic form than an art form. I’ve never really been interested in creative writing, so most of the writing I have done has been for essays. This class will probably help me break away from the to-the-point writing I have been taught for so long, and hopefully help my writing become an art form of its own.

I also never thought much about the countless forms of digital art. In some of the art classes I took in high school, a few of my classmates would make digital drawings, but I never did this, so I never considered myself a digital artist. I didn’t even consider the other forms of digital art, like photography, video editing, audio editing, and various other forms of media created digitally. Though I still don’t have experience with digital drawing, I do have some experience with the other forms of digital art now, so I would consider myself a digital artist in progress.

    I agree that when I think of art I tend to think of a very small amount of people being artists and often forget that there are more types of art out there. And good luck with working on your writing style!

    I really love how you say you would consider yourself a “digital artist in progress”. That is such a cool way to describe it, and something I can relate very much to! I also love how well set up your blog is, it’s so nice!
