No More Starving Artists! – Stage 1


Thank you for showing up, and welcome to ArtHaven’s flagship art initiative, the ‘No More Starving Artists’ Movement.  This is our forever art, our never ending opus.

This is an extended thought piece where it is our goal to provide you with an aesthetic experience that is catered to your silent dreams and undiscovered aspirations.

Language. Images. Growth.  Life.

What’s the idea?

The idea here is to create momentum toward being comfortable with what for many is likely an uncomfortable idea.

We believe everyone holds within themselves the capacity to create something new, something beautiful.  We believe that when you choose to share that creativity with the world, you become an artist.  Moreover, we believe that any artist striving for success in their craft will achieve success in their life. The trick is believing that you’re an artist in the first place, and go from there.

We can’t tell you you’re an artist.  You have to tell yourself. That’s what’s tough. Many of you won’t believe us when we say you’re a capable artist, and yes,

we are talking to you.

This is going to be difficult

Right now we’re just starting out.  Our tribe is small. We envision this piece as occurring in stages.  This is stage one.  We’re not sure where this will take us, and we’re doubly unsure if it will work.  

This is going to be difficult because the idea wheel in our collective heads is innocently spinning in the wrong direction.  There is a plague of thought that says starving is what artists do best. This thought is dangerously comfortable because it means you don’t have to try, you don’t have to put yourself out into the world. You can be safe.

We want to show you that there is a life beyond safe, that there’s something better, and you won’t starve.

When we say this to you, you can feel the truth in the words. You may not know exactly why you feel this way, but it is now a gift in your mind that can be opened.

We want to share this journey with you.  We are excited for you to share your journey with us.

Say it with us, ‘No More Starving Artists!’

What’s going on here?

This is the easy part.  For right now you can contribute your thoughts on the following, or read what other’s say:

Why are you, or why are you not an artist?

Send us your thoughts in the section below where we will post them here for all to read, or send an email to where we will hold your thoughts in our vaults of deep contemplation until it is time for them to be released unto the world.

We expect that you will go largely astray, off-topic, and we encourage you to stay with the question, but don’t hold back.  Maybe just tell us how we can do better.

Be honest with us, be honest with yourself.
