Can you train someone to be a good artist, or is a good artist born with his/her special talent?
It's both. A genius is 99 percent perspiration and one percent inspiration. Just the special talents cannot take anyone very far in the absence of adequate qualification from the university of hard knocks.
Oh yes.You are asking only about being an artist not a birth condition. we can all become what ever we want to, just by determination,persistance and personal Vision.
You can do It!!!!
an artist doesn't just paint..they are a creative person who uses their imagination and common items to put their ideas to work.
Some people use trash to create their art. The saying that "one man's trash is another mans' treasure" is so apropos
you can train someone to look at the art with a different eye..
most artist are not confident so once confidence is better they will improve
I'm more with A_K than, sofs. Anyone can go through the grind of the mechanical, perspiration, side of art, and become competent, even good. However, the inspirational side, may not come, or may come very slowly as the apprentice improves, or even not completely. Vision is something that is not, necessarily, learnable.
In my opinion, everyone is an artist as each one of us can perceive things in a different way and each one of us learn at least one skill in life. Only the canvas, colours we choose and paint brushes we use are different for different people.
Even a surgeon is a skillful artist, using his tools - surgical knives to shape his patient's life. But the man is not a born surgeon, he needed extensive training and skill building and of course possessed a basic intellectual mind to pursue medicine.
So, if we have basic understanding and interest in a subject or any kind of art, we can be taught or trained to be creative in that art, we can give our best performance if we are determined in our endeavour.
