  • jennyfillius Jenny Fillius As a maker I only value and welcome the critique of someone who
    1. Works with tin or 2. has formal education in art. I would never be so bold as to assume I know more about someones work and therefore qualified to offer a critique. It also might make me very unpopular amongst my friends. People who copy others art will eventually go on to copy someone else, while the original artist will have new ideas and continue to improve or show new innovations.

  • Harriete Harriete Estel Berman, artist, writer at Harriete Estel Berman @Blakeneyd Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate hearing your opinion. No worry about the 10,000 hours. It is most important to allow yourself time to develop a expertise or mastery, than worry about counting the hours.Experience with all media translate into finding your artistic voice.

  • Blakeneyd Blakeneyd Thank you for sharing this. So much of what you said resonated with me – especially about the overabundance of tutorials, and tutorials that follow a “recipe” with predictable results.

    I‘ve been trying to teach myself Photoshop, and checking the Internet for tutorials. What I’m seeing a lot of is posts like “Create an Amazing Realistic Banjo in Photoshop!” I don’t really want to learn to create a banjo. I want to know about things like the differences in the blending options, and when which should be used. But so many tutorials do have a “Create This!” type of format, and you begin to feel guilty and “behind” if you don’t follow along. (Suppose I desperately need to create a banjo someday? What if my life depended on it?)

    The concept of 10,000 hours in order to achieve mastery in any area is very daunting, and for me a great deal of the fear also comes from a feeling of “what if this isn’t the media I should actually be working in?” I wish I could say with 100% certainty that “this is my true calling” of any one thing, but at the ripe age of 45 I’m still finding my way. So many interests, so little time, that I get anxious about spending too much time in any one area – which is not the way to encourage exploration and mastery, I know. It was also very encouraging to hear that failure is a part of finding your artistic voice – that’s something I need to be reminded of now and again. :)

  • suekingma Sue Kingma at nuno Thank you Harriet ever so much, for putting it into logical, considered logic - from a concerned South African teaching creatives - so so aware of plagiarism, copying, 'change it 10% and it is your design', oops! 12 months ago

  • deborahpaul11 Deborah Paul, Tin Obsessive at Deborah Paul Art Thank you Harriette, for this timely piece. I particularly 'liked' the reference to the 'like' button. It often appears that people are addicted to having their work 'liked' when in reality it seems that this is such a fleeting and shallow response to one's creativity. 1 year ago

  • CMFox CMFox I just listened to your lecture to the polymer clay group. Bravo!

    I am an artist as well as a director of a fine art and craft show.
    Our show has taken the step of offering artists written feedback on how the jury viewed their application and constructive criticism on how to improve it.

    Most of the artists who ask for this feedback are happy with it. Some have told us, that it has increased their acceptance rate at other shows. But each year I am amazed to have 1 or 2 artists respond with anger that we dared to critique their work. I don’t know what they are expecting that if they weren’t accepted to the show...why the jurors would then praise their work? And further if they didn’t want the constructive criticism why did they ask for it?

    This is my roundabout way of saying THANK YOU for bringing up the idea of the critique and its importance to the growth of each artist. I wish there was more places for artists to go to get feedback on various aspects of their work. Maybe your lecture will be the nudge that will get art critique groups going.

    Thank you again.
