Amongst the many misconceptions surrounding art is the belief that you have to be born with the talent to achieve something from it. So many people are afraid to delve into arts because they think that there is no benefit from it because they do not know anything about it – or they believe they are “talentless”. Well, let me say, that does not hold true. I have seen and known of many a person who states they have no skill, gain so much from the actual act of being artistic. Remember also that art comes in many forms. Art can be painting, or drama, singing or playing music, or pottery, sculpture, printing … the list goes on and on. Art has been a large chunk of my entire life; from bringing inspiration, motivation, peace, harmony, confidence and success, it has also brought me a wide array of actions that is advantageous to my growth and well-being.
