This week we are going to listen to the 3rd of 5 segments from an interview I did with Dan Cautrell on Becoming a Creative.
Dan is a friend, fellow hockey player, owner of FUSION PRESS STUDIO, and closet harmonica player.
The beautiful image above is Dan’s contribution to the Facing Homelessness Project. Artists were asked to do portraits of some of the homeless population around the Seattle/Ballard area which would later be auctioned off to raise funds for Street-Heart, a homeless advocacy organization.
In this 7-minute segment of Becoming a Creative, Dan and I discuss some of the OBSTACLES to CREATIVITY.
-Do SCHOOLS devalue the ARTS?
-The EFFORT of being CREATIVE
-REASONS for SELF-SUPPRESSION
-DIFFERENCE between a HOBBYIST and a WORKING ARTIST
