Skyholder, by Marvin Bartel

I am trying to figure out how to be an artist. I'm pretty sure it's there, somewhere inside, but I've never had any clue how to get it out where I can use it. I've never had an art class that was more than 4 weeks, and the three 4-week courses I've had didn't teach me anything except the basic use of a new medium, they didn't teach me about making Art.

I came across the website of Marvin Bartel that has some seemingly-useful insights on how to teach creative thinking, how to really draw out Art, but it seems that it could pretty easily be applied to self as well. http://www.goshen.edu/art/ed/creativitykillers.html Now I just need to make the time to really do it.....
