“An artist also may be defined unofficially as ‘a person who expresses him—or herself—through a medium.”
This resonates with me so much!
My medium is WRITING. Also DANCE/MOVEMENT. What’s yours?
I believe we all have a form of self-expression. We are alive. We have a soul. And our soul has a voice. And that voice is expressed by our art.
Growing up when I heard “art” I thought drawing and painting—likely because that is what we did in art class.
But if I made an art class now it would be exploring a wider array of arts: drama, dance, ANY form of self-expression so people could get exposure to many kinds and find the type that speaks to them—or more accurately, the type with which they speak THEIR truth.
