Myart Beliefs



Myart Beliefs

At Myart, our students not only learn how to draw and paint, they develop creative problem solving skills and confidence in themselves. Our non-competitive environment supports learning and creativity in our students and is based on key beliefs that help to eliminate negative and worrisome feelings about their drawing skills. Some of these key beliefs are:

  • Drawing is a teachable skill at which everyone can be successful. Our guided Zionsville and Indianapolis art lessons for adults and kids show students how to break down a subject into basic art fundamentals of line, shape, color and design. Students acquire the skills and knowledge of how to draw whatever they choose, and through practice they can perfect those skills.
  • You don't have to wait to grow up to be an artist. Many adult artists have attempted to capture a childlike essence or energy in their art. They are inspired by the children's free use of color, shape, symbols, etc. This simple truth speaks to the importance and validity of children's artwork.
  • There are no mistakes. Each attempt in drawing is a stepping-stone to achieving a final result. Each time an undesirable line is made, the artist is given more information about his/her drawing. It doesn't necessarily mean the artwork is doomed and/or ruined. Now that they know what they don't want, students are encouraged to make a different line to figure out what they do want. This process can often invoke a new creative approach or inspiration that otherwise may not have been discovered if the artwork was simply crumpled and thrown away.

 

  • There isn't a better or best. Each piece is simply different. Rembrandt and Van Gogh are two famous artists with very different styles. One artist is not better than the other. Although a personal opinion might favor one artist over the other, it doesn't make one a good artist and the other bad. They are simply two different artists. At Myart art studio, we teach our students to respect the artwork of fellow artists/students and how to learn to appreciate the similarities and differences in their work.
  • It is OK to be inspired by another artist. It is a common practice in the realms of higher education for artists to study the line drawings of Durer by drawing his drawings, or to study the paint strokes, or color palette of another artist by attempting to duplicate their works. This process is considered a valid and important learning tool. Creating an original piece of artwork is a wonderful goal to have, but difficult to do if one doesn't have enough information about how to do it or the art skills to execute the knowledge. At Myart art studio, everyone is given enough structure to be successful and enough freedom to be creative.
