Everyone tells you to strive to do your best, but what is… yourself? Is yourself the responsible girl who leads teams to victory? the studious and smart one? Or is yourself the uncaring, lazy, internet loving… child? The answer is… I don’t know. 2017 will be a year of discovery for me, and that’s why I’m deciding to focus on a thing that I love no matter what- being Artistic.
Artistic? How out of the ordinary.
But it’s really not. It’s about discovering myself in a different way.
Art is about letting your creativity flow. To think outside the box. To take chances, make mistakes, and get messy. When it comes right down to it, art is in all of us, and this year, I want to pull out and develop that.
My Goals Are
1.Learn how to use Anatomy when drawing
2. Keep things organized.
3. Stop procrastinating and tackle your problems head on.
I want to be able to project the world I see in a way that isn’t verbal. I want to be able to show the world my story. I feel like my thoughts would best be explained with realistic art. I need to start somewhere, so how about something I know pretty well- humans? That’s a good place to start. I can slowly start getting better at drawing the people I see. Draw this diverse and beautiful community. I think that is what would suit me best.
Everything in my life seems to be a mess. My room, my schedule, my motivation, etc, etc. I need to clean everything up if I want to be who I want to be when I grow into a full fledged adult. I need to clean up by finding ways to do everything in a way that I find enjoyable. Think outside the box, ya know? I want to be creative as I find solutions to my messes. I’ll think like an artist as I fix my errors.
Procrastination has always been a problem of mine. I’ve gotten so used to being able to do all my work in a night that I started doing that with things such as large projects. That has really affected my grades n’ stuff, so I need to tackle my problems head on. I will get out my inner artist and write that essay and make it harder, better, faster, and stronger. I will make my work truly my own, and I won’t do it at the last moment.
Art has always been such an important part of my life. I am an artist, musician, composer, and a writer. I believe everyone is an artist, just at different levels. In 2017, I will make myself a better artist than I was before.
