starting to think that the hardest part of learning to make art is not actually learning the craft but unlearning so many toxic attitudes about art that pervade our culture

@Primo @dankwraith Honestly hopeful if someone gets discouraged while learning they have this rise up in their head and won't feel bad anymore
