In today’s podcast episode, we talk about whether you’re ever too old to start making art…
And the answer to that question is NO.
So that’s it for today, we’ll see you next time!!
No, but seriously It’s a question you hear from older people, wondering if they’ve left it too late to learn. And Sandra remembers wondering the same thing when she started because she didn’t start taking art seriously until she was in her early 30’s… and even then she wondered if she had missed out on too much learning time.
So get your reading glasses on (mine are on already), grab a cocoa, turn up the volume, and we will begin. How do young people today hear with all those background distractions? It’s like being in a disco!
Some of the things we discuss
- The different reasons you might start creating art
- The social aspect of art
- How art can help your mental and physical well being
- How art can be something you can leave behind for future generations
- How art doesn’t have to cost much and so can be a great hobby.
- How being older can make you a more confident artist
Plus we share some of the ideas you all suggested (thank you so much!)
This week’s creative question
This is a question suggested by Deb Saine who is an artist in our Facebook Group –
Q. If you could create with two famous creatives- one living; the other, dead, who would they be and why?
The best answers will be read out on the next joint podcast.
You can Tweet us your answers @KickCreatives or let us know in the Facebook Group, which by the way if you haven’t already joined, I highly recommend that you do! We will put the question up there and also on the facebook page… and of course, on our Instagram page @kickinthecreatives.
If you have any suggestions for the podcast or our challenges please feel free to get in touch.
