Finding Joy in the Process of Making Art

I feel that learning to appreciate the process of making art and how the artist/student feels about it is more important than the product.  If the artist/student can enjoy art making as a process of trial, error and discovery, then the product will usually be satisfying. The artist/student will get involved with the process and not be worried about “is it going to be good?”  When coupled with building skills in drawing, design, color and techniques as students are ready, the student builds self confidence and becomes more willing to take creative risks with their work. At least this has been my experience with teaching.
