I remember when an older artist I admired took the time to email me back when I was in fifth grade, I was so shocked. He answered a few questions about his inspiration, materials and process, and I was through the roof with excitement. 
My work was not well received  throughout my education, I always felt my way of rendering the world was strange because it was different, however the same thing that gave me the inability to conform artistically as a kid ended up being one of the things that keeps me continuously challenged by painting today. It was always those that encouraged me to rely my differences and embrace my instincts with art that where both critical and supportive- that I have to thank. I think it’s the responsibility of the artist today to encourage kids to be less self conscious about what they create, to focus less on assimilation and more on abandoning expectation.  When art is not for art history’s sake but for humanities it preserves the ability to embrace individualism, and in turn, it creates more creators that hold ars gratia artis as a maxim.
