The reason I love this work: Creativity Cultivation, Art Nurture, all of it....find out why this is my happy place
Recently, I shared with you why I love my art. The cool thing is, my art encompasses more than it used to...or at least it is more now than I thought it was or would be....it's not just the visual art I make any more that I count as my art. This work that I do here at Art Nurture has become my art. Really this journey began as a personal exploration for me to get myself back in my art studio and it has grown and become so much more than I could have ever imagined.
I love this work. I love working as a "Creativity Cultivator".
I truthfully couldn't imagine my life without Art Nurture and I find it so interesting that it happened as just an experiment. Art Nurture was born because I was wondering if creativity could be nurtured. And now I know, the answer is a resounding 'YES'!
The reason I love this work, is because I really love people.
Yes, I know, I know. People can hurt you. People make mistakes. People can let you down. It's true. We can be a sloppy mess more days than we would care to admit.
But the longer I do this work, the more I get to know people and share in their Creativity Cultivation process, the more I see that most people's creative dreams are really beautiful and really good.
So, there you have it: the reason I love this work is because I get to be a part of all kinds of people's lives and I get to watch them fly.
But I get to see all kinds of people do all kinds of amazing work!
I get to see people's confidence grow.
I get to see people's projects get funded and take off and fly!
I get to see people raise money for charity.
I get to see creativity cultivators develop their art skills and hone their craft.
I get to be a witness to the creative process as someone buys their first instrument and takes a lesson.
I get to see people make amazing steps and strides for themselves.
I get to watch it spill over into their community.
I get to hear about it!
I feel honored that the folks I work with share so much of their lives and their world with me. It's such a beautiful exchange, some days I can hardly keep from smiling and crying at the same time.
You are what I love about this work.
Just as I love my own art because it causes me to go deeper, it beckons me to grow, so does my work here at Art Nurture.
It's a joy to show up to the office when I get to work with you. I look forward to it each week.
Now, it's your turn. Why do you love what you do?
