About Fine Arts

Matisse said that creativity takes courage, and no one would dispute that. But for anyone wondering about whether to commit to creativity as a way of life, it was sociologist Charles Horton Cooley who said it best: ‘An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one’.

No one would claim that trying to make your way as an artist is the easiest road to career success, but that road is also incredibly free and therefore greatly rewarding. The fine arts are quite different to other creative disciplines such as design and architecture because there is no particular set of functional parameters to work within, and there is a lot less focus on meeting client expectations or commercial goals. But that doesn’t mean it’s a breeze, either.

Creativity is no longer accepted as simply the product of born genius; it’s a practice that is learnt and honed over time. Successful artists today are typically imaginative, adaptable and good collaborators – they need to be sensitive to the workings of the world around them and find opportunities to be heard.
