Splattering the Canvas

Splattered Canvas

In class over the passed couple of days, I’ve worked with a

couple of peers on a large sheet of  green butcher paper to

jot down as many “bad ideas” to solve issues we had

thought of at the time. Although it seems, during the

process quite pointless and silly, it is a common

technique artists and creators use to brainstorm their ideas.

When we hear a song on the radio or read a book

we tend to criticize or praise the song or book based on

what we are sensing at that current moment. While there is

nothing wrong with voicing our opinions about an artist’s

work of art, sometimes we need to realize how many

drafts, demos, versions the artist has gone through to

result with his or her final masterpiece.
