Am curious how many people without a belief in god tend to lean to aspects of music/art and creativity in general
Guitar, banjo, dulcimer, piano, flute, sax. Ex folksinger from late 1950s through '60s. Songwriter/composer/arranger. Author and playwright/screenwriter. Advertising copywriter. Tech writer.
Tech illustrator. Graphic artist/advertising. Yacht designer/builder. Fine arts. Model maker. Set designer.
I am creative but would not classify myself either of the two choices. I personally believe those who dabble in the arts do so out of fulfilment of a need to either create something or fill a void. Never thought about it having to do with or without a belief system, something to think about.
I have a first in Fine and Applied art and was 'artist in residence' in my borough in the' year of the artist' I don't do so much these days but I rather think that the training involved sticks to everything within you. Without realising it, it juts gets internalised as part of the self and you don't even notice the art process. as someoen said 'L'art c'est moi!'
