How important is learning the technique?

How important is learning the technique?
 
Although, I have taught art classes for over 15 years I can't seem to stress to my students enough (young & old), that when it comes to creating anything, it is more important to learn the techniques and then apply the process. This mean that one has to study, examine, and explore what is needed and how the artists may have created the work if you are not certain.
 
 
 
Once you are content with what you know then now becomes the time to actually apply the process.

The Importance of Being Flexible
 
I received my B.F.A from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago some time ago now. At any rate, my degree from SAIC is in painting and drawing with emphasis in art education and art therapy.
Although, my major was painting and drawing I had an interest (and still do today), to find out how other artistic works are created. I took classes in Fabrics that included weaving, sewing, knitting and transferring imagery onto a variety of fabrics, and other mediums.

why do business with Us?

          The last time we touched upon the topic of, "Why do business with us,"  was back in 2012. We started off with showing, selling and posting about my line of hand-made jewelry. The following year my partner Selenia and I decided that we should focus more on my artwork of painting & drawing. This is where we are now in 2014. We are aware that their are those who actually became fans of my jewelry line and visited the site regularly for up dated information on the next jewelry piece, or post.

Jewelry with a purpose

How do we make jewelry with a purpose? Well, I can't speak for all of us who create jewelry, however as for me I believe the way to create jewelry with a purpose is just as with any other venture you want to be most successful in. Having a vision. Seeing a reason to bring something into existence.
 
To make jewelry with a purpose it must come from the spirit, reach the soul and the inner perimeter of the mind and then the hands will give birth. It's just that deep for me.
