Episode 9: Content and Intent – Being Political

ep9_mug_no

Is art political – and does it have to be? Do you have a responsibility to make with issues and values in mind? Is crafting as post-apocalyptic life skill a political statement? Either way, we have a lot of feelings on the subject, and on current events.

Tiff’s painted rocks!

Touchy feely touching base time. How are we feeling about our creating? Is talking about it making it better or worse? And is it OK to do a thing just because it’s fun?

When do you decide you feel good enough about your art to start charging for it? And how do you put a value on it? We discuss the commercial side of creating. We also check in on our homework progress, and sing the praises of professional framing.

Episode 3: Why do we make? (”Hello. I am achiever. Please notice.”)

Why? That is forever the question, isn’t it. Why do we make and do? Also, can we just put in our 10,000 hours spread over a thousand different things?

Homework for the episode is to find something you’ve made and put it in a frame.
