Get the arts education you always wanted

Five posts gathered from art discussion site—“no art degree required”—which went live to nonmembers on April 7 (partners behind it including ART21, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum and New York Public Library):

-“There’s a vacuum in people’s lives [about] expressing themselves.”

-"As an artist, you’re always trying to figure out, ‘How do you give voice to something that’s there but not necessarily visible?’”

-“Those words get mixed up: What is ‘truthful’ and what is ‘beautiful’?”

-“It’s about tapping into that little hidden something that unlocks somebody.”

-“The challenge of your time is the challenge of empathy.”
