My second blog post as a creative contributor at the MMCA Marketplace has recently been posted.
The theme of the post is a topic that I feel is a big part of fostering creativity: embracing mistakes.
"As artists, there are many things we can be taught: technique, composition, and color theory to name a few. As I have spent more time making art, the more knowledge I have gained. But I have not only learned the “right way” to do things. I have also learned the “wrong way.” And by this I mean mistakes. No. I did not have to learn how to MAKE mistakes…that came naturally. But what I have come to understand is how important it is to EMBRACE mistakes. And in some ways, this lesson has been one of the most important I have learned."
You can read the rest of the post at this link. And while you are there, look around as there are many treasures to be found at MMCA.
