Lately I have noticed an interest shown by my students on the significance of art..Oddly I never thought I would have to explain why art matters but in some aspect, art serve little to no purpose to them. When you invest your being into something greater than yourself, it’s almost painful to think of anything that would be more significant. A part of my interest in art comes from my willingness to submit to my weaknesses, share parts of myself that most would not or allow myself to experience life without the lense of doubt. A part of you has to want to be a part of art and the process of creating. You have to want it more than anything and there must be a willingness to sacrifices comfort for the sake of art. That, is why art matters and why there is nothing else.
