Having realized that you have some sort of raw artistic talent, the next thing you need to do is to figure out ways of developing the talent. This is out of appreciation for the fact that raw (unrefined) artistic talent, by itself, is not likely to take you far. You have to put in some sort of effort, to develop the talent. The question that comes up, then, is as to how exactly you can go about developing the talent.
One obvious thing you need to do, when trying to develop your raw artistic talent, is to undertake a lot of practice. If there is one place where we see practice making people perfect, then it has to be in the artistic field. It is primarily through consistent practice that you will get a chance to refine the raw artistic talent, into genuine artistic ability: the sort of artistic ability that people can pay money for.
Another thing you need to do, when trying to develop your raw artistic talent, is to try to learn as much as you can from other successful artists. One approach you can use here is where you simply observe their artistic performances, and try to learn as much as you can in that way. Another approach is where you try to contact the successful artists directly, and try to turn them into your mentors. Let’s assume, for instance, that you use the SBCglobal email network. In that case, you can take a step of faith, and go to the Att.net email website (which is where SBCglobal is accessed), and once there, send an email message to a successful artist, requesting him or her to be your mentor. Or you can use any other email system reviewed at emailaccountsonline to contact a successful artist, in your bid to get an artistic mentor. Even if the successful artists don’t respond to your mails favorably, you’d still — at least — have tried.
Yet another thing you need to do, when trying to develop your raw artistic talent, is to network with the ‘movers and shakers’ in your artistic field: the people who have the power to move your talent to the next level. These include the promoters, producers and other such folks. This is something we covered at considerable length in our last blog post.
