Someone once asked me if I was an Artist or a Creative. My response was “What is the difference anyway? Aren’t all Artists also Creatives and all Creatives, Artists?” The distinction between the two can be difficult to identify until both are more clearly defined. Artists are experts, masters in their art form. Creatives, on the other hand, are those with the ability to make new things or think of new ideas. They are imaginative, innovative, and experimental, but not necessarily professional as Artists are. Read More

Have you heard of playGround? I mean, obviously you’ve heard of playgrounds before; after all, we were all 5-years-old once. But I’m not talking about those kinds of playgrounds; I’m talking about playGround Festival (the capitalization here is VERY important)! playGround is like York’s very own Fringe festival. Students can submit a concept and a script of a monodrama, and from that, a panel of students collectively picks the final line up.

Thanks to this, I think I’ve learned a thing or two about the university experience and how to tailor it to my needs, plus figure out the way to get the most out of it. Read More

Hi, I’m Liana! Every month I’ll be taking on a new art form that I’m interested in, and I’ll be working though the process of teaching myself how to do it. This month I’m participating in Inktober!
Inktober is something that artists participate in worldwide during the month of October. Creatives challenge themselves to make art everyday. People use different mediums, but the most popular form that I’ve seen on social media, and the one I will be doing this month, is drawing. I’m hoping to introduce a creative habit into my daily routine, and I’ve also always been impressed by people who can find time to write (and not just type) every day, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to explore!

As emerging artists, it is often that we find ourselves promoting our work and constantly seeking support for our art. However, how often do we see a theatre show, a dance performance or visit an art gallery? How often do we actually support our fellow art students?

The person you are now is very different from the person you were at the start of the summer – or even from the person you were at the start of the school year. You’ve changed in so many ways that you may not even recognize yourself. Family members probably brought some of these recent changes to your attention at family dinners over Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps you noticed some things about yourself while you were passing the gravy to your grandma. Change is a good thing! At AMPD we encourage reflection, so let’s take a look at some of the changes you may be experiencing in this second-wave psychological puberty that no one told you was coming.
