Creating art with a message can be a really fun and creative way to express your thoughts, beliefs and bring awareness to people about subjects you are passionate about. Art can be more than just putting pencil or paint to paper or canvas.

I recently released a video sharing my top 7 tips on How to Create Art with a Message or meaning. For a more comprehensive look into my tips be sure to check out the video below.

Meanwhile, here is a quick overview of the tips that I shared:

Tip 1:  Choose a subject that has meaning to you

Tip 2:  Choose a message that is relatable

Tip 3:  Create a strong composition

Tip 4:  Choose an appropriate style for your message

Tip 5:  Provoke a feeling

Tip 6:  Create a series/collection on the subject

Tip 7: Don’t force it

As you can see quite a bit goes into consideration when creating an art piece or collection with a specific message or meaning.

Be direct and concise with each piece and remember, messages of a piece can change depending upon its supporting field of reference.  So consider, create and let your voice be heard.
