#MidnightOil had a heart, a conscience and a strong Australian identity that spoke up for everyman. The Making of Midnight Oil captures the excitement, the big issues and the sound perfectly and completely. #artscentremelbourne #outandabout #outinmelbourne #music #Victoria

Find your inner artist

Great quote, so many of us loose touch with our inner child as we age.   As children we love making some type of art – painting, singing, writing, dancing, playing music or making things. But for many of us  busy lives take over, people tell us we are or aren’t good enough and other activities take over our spare time.

Through our school years we hear that our picture of a our friends don’t look like them. You start to notice people get excited about your friends singing but not about yours. Creating got stressful, nerve wracking and created the fear of not being good enough.

So here’s what we must do if we want the joy of making art back. We must reclaim our artistic loves –

  • because creating is rewarding, fun and calming, all at the same time.
  • because it’s spiritual, healing, transformative
  • because it will help your physical health by reducing the effects of  stress
  • because it will make you a kinder, more generous person to be around.

And if there are kids in your life – let them see an adult, happily creating for the joy of it.
