Whether you are a designer, illustrator, painter, chef, sculptor or any other form of artist, the life that you are leading could maybe use a little extra flair. So, to help you with that we have come up with a bucket-list that every artist can utilize in their lifetime.
1. Visit art museums
Gain inspiration from the artists that came before you.
2. Create something every day
It can be a grand masterpiece or it can be a simple doodle. When you create, you replenish your motivation and that helps you to feel proud of yourself.
3. Visit the Louvre Museum in Paris
4. Read more books about art
History of art is incredibly important because it contains the knowledge you might not have known. Read up on every type of art you can even if it may seem like it has nothing to do with what you are doing right now – it could come in handy later on. Remember, Leonardo Da Vinci was an innovator and an artist.
5. Learn to paint, if you don’t know how already
6. Explore other modes of art
Going along with reading about art, exploring other mediums can help get you outside of your comfort zone. You may find that you actually want to paint or draw or cook. You won’t know until you try them out!
7. Go see the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in NYC.
8. Visit the Biennale in Venice
Personally speaking, the Biennale is amazing. It’s a modern art museum located in Venice, Italy. There you will see art from each country selected meticulously from only a handful of artists where each country gets its own building in a wooded area.
9. Continually learn new techniques to become a better artist
Always be a student. As you age, don’t expect everything to stay the same. Some techniques are tried and true, but there will always be new ones to learn.
10. Share your art with others
11. Go without technology for a portion of your week
Technology can be distracting at times especially with notifications constantly interrupting you. Taking a break can help you relax and reconnect to the world that you live in.
12. Learn to meditate
Meditating is proven to calm and center people. Artists tend to overthink and sometimes stress a lot, so it’s beneficial to learn how to breathe to unwind and destress.
13. Try new foods
New things really do inspire you and trying new food gets you out of your comfort zone. It’s another way to experience other cultures that can end up inspiring you.
14. Say thank you to the people who have supported your work
15. Support your fellow artists
Just like you want to be supported, you must show the same love to your community of artists. That doesn’t always mean you need to spend money on whatever they make, but visit their galleries, show up to art events and/or congratulate them on their hard work.
