Once upon a time I was a kid in highschool, taking part in an art class. Now in this class I got to experiment with paint, paper, clay, and everything else in between. Were my projects the best projects? No. Not at all. But I had that creative outlet and security net to try anything under the craft world sun. Skip forward a few years and I'm in the real world. The real world doesn't offer that creative outlook on a silver platter. So I lost my knowledge about the arts. If I wanted a silver vase I would go out and spend the money (probably far too much) on a pre-made vase. Suddenly I lost ALL my creativity and just became dull.
