As an artist I am always looking for ways to grow. I have several forms of art and artistic expression that I am eager to try. The past couple of years I’ve expanded my painting to include a mix of acrylics, watercolors and ink for definition but my exploration won’t stop there. As I try new things, I discover new skills and break barriers that I once had before.
Oil Painting – my go-to paint choice has always been acrylic, in the last year I’ve expanded into water colors but I still have yet to give oils a try so that’s most definitely on my list!
Macrame – The beautiful wall hangings and jewelry that I’ve seen come from this wonderful craft are beautiful. I think this is a skill that will take more patience but I think it will be relaxing and rewarding.
Pottery – Think “Ghost”. How could you not want to try this? I’m a Virgo, meaning I’m an Earth sign and it absolutely intrigues me to be able to create something from such an earthy substance. I cannot imagine not liking the feel of building and creating something within my hands.
Figure Drawing – I’ve started dabbling in this as I explore with oil pastels but this is something I would like to really take the time and dig into. The art of the shape of the human body is beautiful and I truly want to be able to depict it on paper.
Weaving – The intricate designs and colors that can be captured within a woven piece is amazing. How each piece can tell a story of its handcrafted journey.
Calligraphy – I am a quote and inspirational words fanatic. I think this would be a wonderful skill to master to share that love.
Screen Printing – Old school style. I tried this out when I was in school and it is so cool putting your artwork onto the fabric. I would like to revisit this skill.
Dance – I have had dance on my bucket list for a while. The expression that can be shared through the art of dance can be quite powerful. There are many forms of dance that can be explored.
Photography – I have modeled but I would love to be on the other side of the lens.
There are so many forms of art out there. What kinds of art do you do and what’s on your bucket list to try?
