Volume 15

“We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out of it.” - Sir Ken Robinson

Volume 15 Letter From the Editor:

We think that, in the broadest sense, art is created through new ways of thinking and trying something new. Something of value that the world hasn’t seen before. It’s taking risks and putting your passion and creativity into whatever the final product turns into. 

Creativity is now as important in education as literacy and will give you the edge in everything you do. We shouldn’t just be executers when businesses need thinkers and innovators.

This is why we love doing what we do at The Art Of; we strive to present new and innovative ways to broaden minds and challenge thinking. Everyone should be an artist, so we urge you to take inspiration from everything you see, read and experience and be an artist.
