The Problem, and RAZ Solution
First, the Problems
Space and Material
Not everyone has the proper space or materials to create and practice art
Making art can be too messy
Lack of a supportive one-stop-spot for kids and adults to tell their stories, create art, and experiment with various mediums.
Preconceptions about different religions and nationalities
Previous negative experience
Hate and bullying
Significant lack of interpersonal skills
to express one’s opinion
not being heard
High expectations to create perfection
Comparing yourself to other people
Pandemic, wars, inflation, technology, industry, politics
Loss of dreams and imagination
Lack of direction and goals
Brought stress, anxiety, loss, grief, social distancing, and isolation
Put everyone in the situation to look inside themselves and not outside
Made us ask questions:
How can I be happy now by myself, when there is no one to entertain me?
What is important to me?
What are my values?
As we are coming out of the pandemic:
How can I reconnect with people?
How can I find like-minded individuals?
Some kids and adults can't express themselves with words
Many people have difficulties with letting their thoughts out and manifesting them
Too much time spent and or importance put on:
Screen time and internet gaming
You must be born with artistic skills to be an artist
Art is just painting and sculpture
Artist must suffer to create something beautiful
Making art is not a real job and you can’t make money with art
