When I was in grade school, I remember making a paper mache duck for my dad that only had one wing. People thought that was a bit odd but I thought my duck was cool, and just because by the time I got to the other wing I was ready to wrap up the project doesn’t mean it wasn’t artistically significant! Although I have to say the ridicule of my artistic abilities got to me a bit, and I started shielding others from my creative expression.
I’ve come to realize the benefit of art is that it allows you to express yourself creatively, and while people always judge art comes in all shapes and sizes. Painting and paper mache may not be my thing, but I have found photography to be an incredibly rewarding experience – one that takes advantage of my quick mind and unique perspective. And then I came across the best creative exercise for me yet – a manifestation board.
