1. Intro: welcome to quick inspiration for every artist in this class. We're gonna go over three awesome lessons to keep you reaching for the stars and keep your passion on fire for your project. You're gonna seek inspiration from your favorite artist. No worries. I have lots of examples to spark your creativity. Then you're gonna create smart, right it, draw it painted, sketch it, get the idea posted in the Project gallery and please, most importantly, support one another. I am an artist. Art is my passion. And I love learning about artists and how they achieve their dreams. I'm inspired by each and every story. So if you have a dream that sometimes feels impossible, then take notes. Share this presentation with someone who has a dream. Every dream is possible. All of these people thought so. And if they did it, been soaking you. Sometimes there's a slight deviation, but that's life. Let's get this party started 2. Lesson 1 :Passion: lesson one is passion. Every artist has passion. Artist, make us feel inspire. Give, laugh, cry, believe, escape, belong, relate Dream, love, hope, think clay. Fill in the blank and just be a true artist. Exubera. It's passion. Rafael High Renaissance painter. He was said to bring harmony wherever he went. He was passionate about humanistic philosophy, and here's an example in a school of Athens, his love of animals. Portrait of a young lady with the unicorn, Claude Monet. He was passionate about nature. He painted this simply so his future wife could see the mesmerize, mesmerizing countryside. What about Claude Manet's famous haystacks? Or read stacks? Money was fascinated with the light at various times throughout the day and the ever changing seasons and all their beauty, these are just some of his most famous works. Eric was the author of The Themes Hungry Caterpillar. You believe that ideas don't just come from one place. They come from all the experiences in life, all mindful thoughts and feelings in the heart. That's passion. So what was he passionate about? Nature, animals, the joys of being a child, and he just wanted to create a book that felt like a toy. So what do you passionate about? What makes you angry or laugh? What makes you feel have the courage to pour it all over your campus? Your best work is waiting. 3. Lesson 2: Nurture: lesson to nurture your talent. Van Gogh was a self taught artist. The moment he decided to become an artist. He learned from books. He immersed himself in his paintings and learned techniques used color to express his turmoil. He poured his heart out on canvas, and he painted his entire life. Yet recognition came after his death. Then go nurtured his talent, Monet said. The words, I'm great people just don't know it. Yet he kept painting his way The Impressionism way. At one time, his art was controversial and deemed unfinished and unworthy for exhibition. Yet today his painting sell for millions. Monet nurtured his talent. Alan, Say, was an illustrator. As a young boy, he came to America and was greeted with racism. So what did he do? He looked in the mirror and saw the reflection of a cartoon character who was adventurous. And from that moment on, Allen do everything he drew everywhere he went, he experiences that he was having well, he illustrated them. So yes, he drew so much Rafael. He had amazing talent, and that's evident in the self portrait that he sketched in his teens. Yet he continued to nurture his talent. He helped his father in the studio and later apprentice with the leading painter. Later on, not only did he study, but he mastered the techniques of great painters. Like Michelangelo, Raphael nurtured his talent. So lose yourself in your art, learn and keep on working every single day, build a habit and guarded. 4. Lesson 3: Be Radical: Lesson three. Be radical. That's what all the art movements did. Impressionists were rejected from the Salon Paris exhibition for the use of quick short strokes, subject matter and color. So what did they do? They simply kept on painting, and they started their own independent exhibition. Not only was this radical, but what a fabulous way to nurture your telling. The woman is looking right at you. She's naked among fully clothed. Meant clearly not. The goddess is found in previous paintings, but Manet wanted to paint nature and modern life. That's what Impressionism was all about. Post Impressionism. Van Gogh was interested in painting nature the way Monet or Manet did. He painted the turmoil in his heart and soul. So whatever's in paso technique, not the smooth finish found and Rafael painting, for example, yet wonderfully beautiful. What about the shift from bright and beautiful? Nature seems to express in the darker side of humanity, like sorrow, death and heartbreak. Creating art from the heart and soul took on a much deeper meeting Expressionism. Here's another. This is a clear contrast from painting of, say, Rafael van Gogh, but interestingly, the brushstrokes resemble bancos. This is a tense and anxious. See, you could almost feel the screen, can't you? Data art is all about chance, and this notion that are can be anything you want it to be. I love that. And this is just my practice on the technique called chance. Being radical means that each week re invent and create your own rules. Being radical means you tell your story. So if you're going to tell a passionate story which you must, then you have to be radical. What about women, painters and all of the research? There wasn't much mention of them until I found an amazing book. Tons of female artist painted, but they weren't allowed as part of male society in art or any career for that matter. But they nurtured their talent and they kept on painting awesome example of being radical. I love these quotes. You should now quote and they're perfect for a radical lesson. In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. My life didn't please me, so I created my life 5. Summary: Let's summarize. Don't give up for your heart on canvas. Nurture your telling and invent new rules for your project. You're gonna seek inspiration from your favorite artist. No worries. I have lots of examples to spark your creativity. Then you're gonna create smart, right? It, draw it painted. Sketch it, get the idea posted in the Project gallery and please, most importantly, support one another. Thank you so much. Remember, Edison needed 10,000 tries. The first time Ellis performed for an audience, he was told, Don't quit your day job because you'll never make it in this business. What lost Big Buddy? One big. We want big in verticals Lifetime. Hardly anyone bought his paintings. Whose talent do you admire? Chances are he or she has passion. And they had to nurture when others didn't believe their ideas were just silly, spontaneous and crazy dreams to the outside world until they came true. 6. Bonus: Inspiration:
