On my visit to the Japanese Garden I met Rei. We did already know each other from the Art Gallery exhebitions and together we strolled around the garden and did our sketches.
We also discussed the matter of the question of the week, Nr 2: ‚Would you be supportive of your child wanting to pursue an art career? Why or why not?‘
We both pretty much agreed on being supportive to the child in a situation like that. I – specially since I choose some kind of an art career for myself. But we also asked ourself if it makes sense to pursue an art career at a young age. We agreed that some amount of experiance is nesessary to be an artist. And being really supportive to a child that wants to be an artist actually could be a bit tricky since it often means more than just visit a school of art or a painting class and learning the craftmanship (we were focused on the graphic arts – probably since we were sketching). It might also mean to travel the world, have good but also bad experiances, to grow up and learn how to express in an artistc way.
