My Skateboard PaintingI tend to both rant and rage about Art.

There are so many ways that art can be done, it’s difficult to discuss them all in great depth on a blog. But I will mention the ones that I have found to be great for expression what I was looking to accomplish.

Sculpture: Sculpture is defined as “the art of carving, modeling, welding, or otherwise producing figurative or abstract works of art in three dimensions, as in relief, intaglio, or in the round.” But there really are no rules when it comes to modern sculpture in my opinion. Sculpture can be woodcarving, caved in marble, metal working, Papier-mâché and more. I find that working with my hands is one excellent way to start the creative flow.

Learning the Hard Way

Painting: Painting can be a musical or a spiritual experience. Some people use painting to express what they saw in their dreams or what they feel when they hear music. Painting can also be therapeutic. For those who have experienced mental breakdowns, strokes, or depression, painting can be a useful tool in therapy to help open parts of the mind back up.

Drawing: With drawing you can either create a 3D looking form or simply sketch out an idea without feeling like you have something missing it. And you can always add or subtract from a drawing. Its harder to take away from something like a painting or glass work.
