Art is not “patented” for artist.
Art is life. Life is also art. Art belongs to everybody.
The process of doing art is enjoyable, including the moments when facing challenges, failures and disappointments.
I have always mentioned to my students: “expressing art is the nature of human. In fact, human has strong desire to praise and express the impressive images that captured him. In ancient, the primitive man already learnt to express themselves through art activities such as painting on cave walls.”
However, today’s lifestyle is getting more and more complex and stressful .As a result, man is no longer “artistic”. This artistic quality of human nature has been depressed for a long time and man couldn’t find a right way to express it out. What a pity!
If you (whatever you are) are keen in art, please slow down the pace of your lifestyle. Pamper yourself with “art”. Please find time for you yourself to do some paintings. Gradually, you will find the “lost city of art” in your heart.
Please don’t worry about your capability in art. Believe me, just do art! Once you have moved a step forward, you will discover a world of art awaiting you.
As for the “James Phua De Horse.Com”, I have decided to provide a column called “My Art Students” .This is a space where my students can show their artworks and share their views and experiences in learning art. Presently, I am conducting art classes in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The courses offered are Chinese Ink Painting, Watercolor, Acrylic Painting, Sketch etc. My students come from different countries and cultural background. They are all serious art enthusiasts.
I look forward to hearing from you guys.
