We Are All Artists of Some Sort

SHFT is a multi-media platform founded by film producer Peter Glatzer and actor-filmmaker Adrian Grenier. SHFT’s mission is to convey a more sustainable approach to the way we live through video, design, art and culture. [SOURCE]

Arts Horizons assembly and teaching artist Greg Vande Hey was interviewed for SHFT’s Gardens NYC video series.  In the video Greg admits that he doesn’t paint as much as he used to because of his two young children but gardening has become his canvas.

Towards the end of the video Greg mentions that “every single person is an artist of some sort,” which is a statement that we completely agree with.  We are all more then capable of creating.  Most of the time, we are thinking creatively and using artistic skills without even being aware of it.  There is an artist inside of each and everyone of us.  Own it!
