Discussion Sunday: Share Your Failures

Discussion Sunday is a weekly blog post that invites The Art League community to share their thoughts. Each week features a different subject of interest to student artists and working artists alike.

This week’s question:

What’s been your biggest creative failure, and what did you learn from it?

If you’ve failed at some point in your art career, that puts you in good company. Failure is an important part of the creative process, if you let it be. (Just read how painter Cristy West takes old failed paintings and reworks them into award-winners.)

So what’s ended up in your studio dustbin? How did you know it wasn’t going to work out? Did it make a recovery? What did you learn for the next attempt? Let’s get the discussion started (photos optional) in the comments, below!

Can't get enough?
