Respond & Be Inspired

Here is another one of our student contributions……

Q: What Inspires me?

A:  One of the things that Bob Pennebaker always hammers in his beginning drawing classes (and high levels too) is not “thinking things up.”  This applies to all areas of art, not just drawing.  This has been extremely helpful in finding inspiration because I have learned to look around my living room or remember something that happened to me the other day and use that as a starting point.  Remembering things that I loved as a child also gives me ideas for development and growth in the future.  We are constantly gaining experience, but we don’t always think of it as artistic.  That is the point, seeing things from a mindset that anything can become art if you respond to it and make it work.
