How to Make Your Creative Dreams a Reality:
Strategies to Cultivate Your Talent

Chapter 1
Sharing Your Dreams 

Your interest will grow and flourish with positive conversations while learning. Starting out, while holding down a fulltime job, my wife Pat and I on weekends with the kids would seek out examples of contemporary craft in a few Galleries and often visit a weekly summer craft show in Philadelphia. This exposure to a variety of art work strengthened my resolve to one day be a studio artist. During these excursions and depending on how busy people were, I would enjoy and learn from the conversations that reinforced the dream of one day being on the creative side full time.

Over the course of my career visiting museums, especially the Philadelphia Museum of Art, exposed me to a fascinating overview of endless wonders of significant art work, past to the present. In the early days when money was tight, we took advantage of visiting the Museum Sunday morning when admission was free from 10:00 to 1:00.


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
