One reply on “Do Artists Need Silence?”

  1. What artists need most is something to blame for not making art. “…Can’t paint because the light is not “right.” …can’t paint because my stomach is growling from hunger (a very time honored and romantic excuse) …can’t paint when the rest of the house is in disarray or there are dishes to be done (I am often guilty of this one.)

    But, in truth, when you are actually in “the zone” nothing can distract you from making art. So the answer is “no.” We do not need silence to create more than we often need the excuse not to be creative. What we need are more ways to just get us into “the zone.” What are your techniques for that?
