favorite quotations  

 

"The art student that should be, and is so rare, is the one whose life is spent in the love and the culture of his personal sensations, the cherishing of his emotions, never undervaluing them, the pleasure of exclaiming them to others, and an eager search for their clearest expression."

   -- Robert Henri (1865-1929) American painter and teacher

 

"The imagination is a powerful tool. An artist can use it to show others the world as he sees it and to bring others into his dream of what the world could be."

   -- David R. Becker Artist, teacher

 

"People frequently believe the creative life is grounded in fantasy. The more difficult truth is that creativity is grounded in reality, in the particular, the focused, the well observed or specifically imagined."

   -- Julia Cameron (1948- ) Author, teacher, artist, novelist, playwright, poet, composer, journalist and filmmaker
