Growing up I was taught, and believed, that it took someone special to be an artist. I couldn’t draw at all, so I fed into the lie that I’d never be an artist. I believed that I’d never live to make art. I bought into this lie hook, line, and sinker.
Maybe you’re like me. Maybe you think making art is something that you’ll never be able to do.
Lately, I’ve found myself reading a lot of stuff from Seth Godin and Jeff Goins. Recently, Jeff interviewed Seth about art. Seth contends that we’ve chosen to fly too low when it comes to creating.
The interview is about half an hour, and can be downloaded here. I would encourage everybody to give it a listen, and share any thoughts that they have.
Also, check out Hope’s Created to Create – Art in God’s Kingdom ed hour that starts this week and will be talking about this topic more in depth.
