I'm sure we all make art in some shape or form whether its visual or performing art. So I'm interested to know what inspires people to make art? Even though I'm a science major myself, I also paint and draw. I do oil paintings, watercolors, acrylic, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencils, charcoal etc... I've been drawing since I was three. The walls of my dorm room are covered with my paintings. I have to say what inspires me to draw are events, people or just things that sort of stick out in my life. I remember when my brother was born, I painted 14 pieces with him as the subject matter. I went on a hike with my family and saw these really pretty flowers so I came home and drew a series of flowers. Sometimes when I'm mad, art can help me release my frustrations. So, what are instances when you are inspired to make art? not just visual art but any art form such as music or theater? What inspires you?
