It takes courage to be an artist, to lay paint on a pristine canvas or cut marks into a smooth plank of wood. It takes confidence and vision to create. It takes practice and dedication to hone specific skills. And most of all, it takes a willingness to learn, to be open to new ways of seeing and analyzing the world. These qualities are not just important in our daily lives as artists. They are necessary to the health of our communities and our nation.
