Are fine artist born or can anyone, with the right training, become an artist?
Are gold rings, diamonds and precious gems are natural or created? the answer is simple gold and diamonds are natural but until they are not purified, shaped and polished they are of no use. In the same way artist have the talent, and are potential artist, and the training make him real artist.
Everyone has its own talent like on art. But it will be purely make him a real artist if he will have a proper training on it.
Anyone can get training, and with enough can be good. A true fine artist is inspired with an inherent affinity or gift. It is what gives visual art, writing, or music its soul.
I have talked to talented artists who say you either have it or you don't. Education and training does not matter.
I have talked to other talented artists who say anyone can be an artist if they work at it.
I kind of lean toward the last statement, although I knew someone who was very good at sketching without formal training, Still he produced a lot of drawings for fun,
Training just hones your skills that you already had. It's a God Given Talent.
I believe both are true. I was born an artist, do everything freehand but I have artist friends who have taught me some things that have actually improved some of my ideas. I also have artist friends who were not born artists and went to school to learn to draw and are now very talented.
The one thing you can't teach someone is creativity and imagination. That comes from within and brings out ideas on paper, brings the soul into the piece and makes it original and unique. That's what I'm best at. If you put an apple on a table and ask me to draw it or paint it, I can do it but it will probably not look too much like that apple and it will be extremely frustrating for me and take me a while. I wouldn't enjoy it either. But if you ask me to draw my own apple from my imagination, it will be a totally different experience and a totally different apple.
It's the opinion of the viewer which apple drawing they'd prefer.
That's where I think the difference is. Having imagination or not. If you have the imagination to begin with, I believe you can learn it but it just won't have the same end result.
i agree with you on your answer. everyone has it inside them to be a great artist. it's a god given talent that each one of us possess but not everyone has come to realize. how we use that talent & when we start to use it differs with each of
In my opinion one can be a fine artist only through the inborn talent within him. Although training helps one to become an artist, it has got some limits.
If you can write your A B C s in print and in cursive, you can learn to draw.
You will then need to develop your "eye" and learn to "see" angles, curves, how light hits an object. You will learn where highlights, middle tones, shadows and reflected light fall.
How to Draw What You See by Rudy De Reyna is the book that my art teacher started me on when I first started studying art 23 years ago. This book will take you step-by-step through lines, shading, using art tools, and it will teach you how to "see" with an artist's eye. I love rendering in graphite and pastel. Those are my two favorite mediums. It took me 5 years to render this portrait.

Do you think you can learn to be an artist, or do you think that all true artists have instinctive talent that can't be learned?
