I used to go to dance classes and my dance teacher used to say that she knows EXACTLY how I am feeling each time just by watching me dance. You know, if the movements were soft and flowing or strong and energetic or fast and like punching through the air, etc. I have always reacted to the emotions in a music really strongly and still do. Like even at concerts I go to, it depends on the music if I’m swaying or jumping or doing fist pumps. It’s like my body moves by itself. But I take that too as a form of “creativity”. You “let your body go” when you hear a song. Put some music on and let oyur body move any way the music makes it move without judging or censoring and thinking “that looks stupid”. Just do it. Of course it helps when you are dancing alone. But it’s very freeing!
Who’s to say what is “good” though? I think it’s all relative. Who really can say what is good art or “worthy” or not? It all depends who is looking and when. I mean, imagine if you would have showed contemporary art to the folks who were used to seeing art done by Michelangelo back in the day? They would have laughed at it and called it crap because they wouldnt have understood it. And still to this day, some love certain artists and praise them…while others absolutely HATE their art and call it crap. In my opinion “good art” is anything that makes someone else FEEL something. And/or makes them think or inspires them or moves them in any kind of way. And that includes the person making it. If someone feels moved by art and enjoys it and finds it relaxing or helpful and enjoyable in any kind of way…it does not matter what the outcome is. If it’s “good” or bad. It doesn’t even matter if you finsih what you started. If you had fun and enjoyed it, then it was valuable And if someone wants to be an artist and everyone keeps saying “that’s not good”, keep doing it anyway if you enjoy it. Sure, you will probably have to find other ways to make ends meet to support yourself, but you never know when the day comes when someone will love what you do. And even if that day never comes. It never goes to waste anyway if you enjoy it. It never goes to waste. Especially since there might be other ways it will end up helping you in your life. Maybe you can’t draw a great portrait yourself, but you have great eye for detail or colors and compositions. Maybe youre great at looking at the “big picture” because of art. Maybe you are able to sit and focus on a project and get it finished because of being used to working on an art project. SOOOO many ways it’s beneficial to us even if the art WE produce isn’t “great” that we often don’t even think about! It NEVER goes to waste!
