Experiencing the World Through Art • by Shelley Overholt
Sharing Ideas & Arts
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to guest curate Jenny’s blog this week. I want to begin the first few days boasting about all the talented women in Oklahoma. We actually are all really good friends. There are so many creative gals around here that it keeps our heads spinning. We are always sharing our ideas and arts with one another. This is how Art Saves me! I love being part of this awesome group.
I felt like I was in my “baby cave” for so long while I was a stay-at-home mom, raising kids that I had back to back. When I met all these gals and started to create with them, it opened a whole new world to me.
Collecting Art Experiences
I don’t have a particular art that I am especially good at or love the most. I just love to spend time with the girls, and I would say that I like to collect art experiences. My friend says that she would describe me as someone who uses art to experience the world. I try not to stress myself out when a project doesn’t work. I just say, “You are making art, not performing a kidney transplant!” I think everyone has an artist inside of them that they need to give the opportunity to shine. I hope you take the time to experience art, don’t be critical of yourself, and let art save you through the process.
