Are you an artist struggling to get your footing lately? Are you in need of some new ideas to rejuvenate your creative capacity? Well, then it’s time to consider one of these artist-focused New Year’s resolutions.
Here are just a handful of terrific ideas for you:
Stop Postponing Your Excellent Project Ideas
Procrastination is a vice whenever you know you can already do what it is you should be doing. Many of us are very good at drafting new project ideas, excitedly sharing them with our friends, but NEVER pulling the trigger. Even us bold and intrepid artists fail to execute awesome artistic endeavors. Resolve to stop doing that in 2022.
New Art Tools
It’s easy to get burnt out if you only use the same materials all the time. Depending on what type of art you do, you might spruce up your repertoire with some new brush pens, art markers, watercolor crayons, and more.
Plan to Attend an Art Workshop Every Month
Sometimes what we need to get the creative juices flowing is to be around like-minded, inspiring individuals. This is true for business professionals, and it even applies to artistic types. That’s why you should consider frequenting art workshops and see the lay of the land in your niche. There are websites like Eventbrite that facilitate all sorts of art-related events in your area.
Network with Other Artists
Of course, while you’re there, don’t be a wallflower. Sure, the best utility you gain from art shows might be the inspiration from the art itself, but you’ll grow even more through human interaction. You never know when you might encounter your next mentor (or mentee) within your art discipline.
Do Some Drawing Outdoors
Do you remember the talented fellow, Bob the Painter, who would coach people on how to paint “happy trees”? He was a brilliant artist, and he inspired many to follow in his footsteps. How did he learn how to paint happy trees? He went outside, found happy trees, and decided to paint them. You can do this too and it’s incredibly beneficial to get fresh air and physically rejuvenate yourself if you resolve to re-embolden your artistic endeavors.
