HomeArt JournalingFear of starting an Art Project


This was me trying to move beyond my anxiety and start creating art again. I’m sure that most artists have that same feeling. Where do you start? What do you want it to look like? Will it be good enough? Should I even start? There are alot of negative thoughts that can confront you before you start any project. I know that I have felt them. I also know that it always gets better once I start. The doubts seem to take a backseat once I’m doing something. I often wonder how many people have great artistic gifts but don’t know it because they are afraid of not being good. I don’t want to be one of those people. I know that I will never be a great artist, but I am good enough for me. ¬†And every time that I try something I get better.

If fear is stopping you from starting, ask yourself why. What are you really afraid of? If its of failing than remember it only has to be for you. No one has to see your art unless you want to show them. I have done tons of projects that no ones really seen, but I felt like making them. And I am more skilled because of it.

So go have fun and make something!!
