I think anyone can do artwork on some level. But I think being an artist is a lifelong process.
I think everyone is an artist! Maybe not as talented as others, but everyone has creativity in them, we just display them in different ways!
I agree with lynevejcnt. Creativity is what it takes to be an artist, though every individual has a variety of skills and creativity in different fields. Thus, I would definitely say that anyone could be an artist, in different genres, eh.
All babies have creativity as part of their birthright but it gets 'bent out of shape by society's pliers.' Bob Dylan c1965.
I taught art to primary school age children (7 - 11) for 10 years, given the right tools, encouragement, and confidence, they soon start dragging this creativity to the surface. Some have better manipulative skills than others, but that is a different question.
What about the excellent painting that illustrates this question, well, it's not the Mona Lisa, but there again, it's not pretending to be, and that doesn't detract, or distract, from its artistry. And to make that comparison we would be running the wrong line anyway.
Have a look at Sir Ken Robinson on TEDs, just put his name into google and watch the 15 min talk on you tube, he has lots of wise words on the destruction of creativity.
everyone can do art, in soem form or another, so it stands to reason that anyone can become an artist, it purely depends on where they have the drive to be one
Anyone can cultivate their creative side, but not everyone can make money at it.
It's hard to know where talent lies until it it nurtured. Being an artist is both technical skills and a natural flare for observation and design. It's hard work too.
I like to encourage the artist in everyone but warn you, from my own experience that, being a really good painter is very, very hard to do.
There is art and there is ART and that leaves a lot of room to take a shot at it.
I think everyone has creativity, but some people can tap into in better than others.

Art is in the doing, if you are a self critic you will never produce anything.
I believe we are all born as artist but forget how to do it, a bit like newborns being able to swim when born but having to learn when a little older.
Here is a question for you all, if the artwork you attempted at primary school was available to view would you be embarrassed by it? If so its your own self critic that stops you producing good works of art.
I believe we all have a sunflowers in us but they would just be in various degrees of abstract.
I like to consider it by this definition: you can show someone how to boil water but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll turn into chefs.
I grew up believing that I had an innate gift and I still believe this today. I don't necessarily feel that I chose to be an artist, but rather that it chose me. If art is your true passion then you will sacrifice SO much for it... money, social experience, normalcy etc... I would never tell anyone not to create if it brings them joy, but that being said... not everyone can be an artist. It is a difficult path.

Hi everyone, The thread yesterday "How old were you when you decided" went so well, I would like to ask another question in the same spirit. Assuming you are firm in your belief (whatever that may be) and that you are content you have found truth, do you think it is the only...

Why do liberals think everyone needs to pay for everyone else.The left constantly berates the Right for not being willing to fund their social pet projects. Why should I be willing to pay for others willingly, when those folks just don't hard enough? Any honest thoughts as to why some feel it is...

Everyone Has A Book Inside Of Them?Do you think this is true? Personally I'm not sure - I think mine would probably be pretty dull! I say that because not being a fiction writer mine would have to be a biography - OMG what a yawn that would be for readers! What would your book be?
