One of the many benefits you can gain from an art education is an “I can do this” attitude that you can use throughout your life.
That’s me with the groom and groomsmen in the back.
I went to an awesome wedding this weekend where there were an abundance of compliments about the creative decorations from shoes, to flowers, to table settings. It’s not uncommon for a bride and groom and their families to make the decisions on such matters, and even assemble many decorations for an event such as this, but these activities can cause a lot of uncertainty, doubt, fear… even panic. There is a reason that weddings are a multi-billion dollar industry, and many people are willing to pay someone else to make sure their event will look good.
A decent art education can develop skills to create, and confidence to make design decisions. This skills can be applied in many situations whether that is a wedding, or choosing drapes for your living room. It’s so important to prepare students to be more than consumers. We all have the capability to be makers, designers, and artists. Come on! You can do this!
Congratulations Eric and Meagan. May you have many happy years together!
