What are some reasons why artists make art?
People make art to relieve stress and get their thoughts out in an artistic way. Also, a lot of people get inspired by others and decide to make art for them. The number one thing why people make art is because of their emotions. Most, if not all artists, art to let out any negative or even positive emotions.
What kinds of problems might artists encounter as they plan, make and share art?
Artists often encounter many problems with planning and making art. Supplies is usually one of the most common issue with being unable to do art. Most artists have supplies, but need more supplies in order to do what they planned to do. Another problem having to do with art is time. Art is a time consuming hobby. In order for your art to turn out the way you want it, you have to spend time on it.
Illustration Fridays have been completed almost every week this semester, do you feel this assignment helped you brainstorm for main project or helped you skill levels in any way? Why, or why not?
The Illustration Fridays definitely helped with brainstorming because it taught me to think out of the box and create art that is unusual and creative. All these drawings I did really improved my drawing/sketching skills. If I were to give advice to someone about art, I would say just think outside of the box and be creative when makin art.
