3 Ways to Get Artistically Inspired

We might not always notice it, but, art is all around us. Pictures or posters on the wall, clothing, and even everyday objects are all types of art that we experience all the time. That’s right! Even if an object isn’t made of what we call “art supplies,” it can still be considered a work of art!

However, actually creating a piece of art can be hard, sometimes. There are several things that some of us think about before we start to create something. What should I paint? What materials will I use to make the painting? What colors will I use?

Because it can be challenging when trying to make a piece of artwork, I think that it’s a great time to share 3 Ways to Get Artistically Inspired! Because, no matter what we are doing, we all need to get inspired, sometimes.

1. Look at other artwork.

If there’s an artist that you look up to, try looking on Google or maybe even going to a museum, and take a look at their art. Don’t try to copy it, but you can use it to inspire your own work. This way, you can respect the legacy of the artist(s) you love, and create your own style of art, as a result!

2. Examine everyday objects.

Art comes in many forms, some of which are everyday objects. Try looking around your home, and find objects that you can either duplicate or utilize to create something completely unheard of! Making art gives you a chance to use lots of creativity!

3. Don’t think about it. Just go with the flow! ✨

Sometimes, the reason why we can’t make anything that we’re actually proud of is because we overthink everything! Try creating something without really thinking about all of the little elements you put into it. Just gather all of your supplies, and get started with creating something absolutely spectacular!

Art can be super fun to make, and there are many more ways to get and/or stay inspired! Do creative things or just observe, and I’m sure you’ll find some inspiration (and motivation) to make some awesome art!

Bye y’all! Have an awesome day! ✨

3 Mediums (or Materials) that I Use for Creating Art

Disclaimer: The art above does not belong to me! :>

What’s up, everyone? Today, I got to learn some great new art techniques in my Visual Art class! I even got to use a medium (or drawing material) for the very first time, which, I have to admit, was very fun!

It was my experience in Art class that inspired me to share with you guys 3 Mediums (or Materials) That I Use to Make Art. If art really isn’t your thing, then I still encourage you to give it a try! Mistakes are the key to a great piece of art! ✨

Let’s get the art party started!

1. Markers

Ever since, preschool, I have always loved using markers! Not only are they super fun to use, but they are also perfect if you want to make your creations pop. Markers have this highlighted or neon touch to them that I really love! But of course, now I stay inside of the lines, lol.

2. Colored pencils

Another medium that I really enjoy using, especially to color my sketches, is colored pencils. I love how light they are on the paper. These provide a more smooth surface than crayons. It even has a cleaner product, which is great if you want your creations to look more professional.

3. Oil pastels

You may not have heard of this medium before, but I believe that oil pastels can truly enhance your creations!

I actually used oil pastels for the first time today! It gave my art a new twist with texture, color, and plenty of techniques. The oil pastels are a lot like crayons or chalk, but they are better if you want to use different techniques like blending or shading. I definitely recommend that you try them out!

Okay, everyone! I really hope that you enjoyed these 3 Mediums (or Materials) that I Use to Make Art! I definitely recommend that you try using these yourself!
