1. Make art.
If you trust the process and get out of the way, the art will probably make itself. Or at least, the artmaking process will be more fun and expressive. Some fear a blank paper. We say it’s a polar bear in a snowstorm slurping a vanilla ice from Rosemarie’s. And if you come in with one (a water ice not a polar bear) it’ll be even easier to get in the mood to make art.
2. Make friends.
For kids, no brainer. For teens, essential. For adults, we laugh, we love, we hope, we try, we hurt, we need, we fear, we cry. And we know you do the same things, too. So we're really not that different, me and you. Enough said… or sung. For seniors. Ditto. Ditto. Ditto. ART Z is a welcoming, supportive community of creative individuals where you can feel free to be your fully-expressed self.
3. Make meaning.
Sometimes we make art for a purpose, like a school project or a gift for a friend. Sometimes art is an expression of what we see or how we feel. Sometimes it just feels great to splatter some paint or squish our hands in clay. Always, art has meaning for the person who made it. If you're not sure, just ask your art, “What do you mean?” If you close your eyes, take a deep breath and wait, your art will answer. It will speak through your soul. Art is always a metaphor for life. Deep, right?
