There may not be a strong financial career from art or artistic endeavors, but by learning those skills and creativity, it will make you more adept at whatever career you do choose to pursue.
Find a way to integrate art into your hobbies if you’re not able to integrate it specifically into your career.
It’s okay to create things that are just for yourself. Ignore the critic, tell them to go away, and do it.
When you think you’re done with a project, just do it for 15mins.
Make exercise fun. You want to make it fun so you continue to want to do it.
If what you need to do is paint all over an entire wall, do it.
Surround yourself with art and you’ll see what other people are doing. Consume and produce art. This will allow you to break beyond what you think you “should” be doing and create what you’d like to create.
We don’t integrate art into classes and STEM because our teachers are not comfortable with it.
Creating your own cross-stitch pattern:
Print our your picture (make it pixilated if you can)
Put a piece of graph paper on top and color in the boxes with the colors you want to use
1 graph paper box = 4 stitches
You can also find websites online that will convert your pictures into a cross-stitch pattern
