From my teaching experience, I observed students who usually compared their work to their peers and then naturally, they become critical of their pieces. They seemed very discouraged and even frustrated. I told my students that we, as artists, are like scientists. Making a mistake is another learning opportunity to have experiences with art in dynamic ways and then make it into personal masterpieces. Like science, there are infinite possibilities. I am constantly challenging my students to express their feelings of creativity and to be proud of who they are and of their efforts.
