I can’t do or think about anything else until I have completed my idea. If you feel the same way, then you are an artist too! Let out your emotions and feelings so you can create the most exquisite pieces you never knew you were capable of.

Becoming A Confident Artist

A constant in life will always be self-doubt. Everyone goes through it at one stage of life or another. The real test of your endurance is will you let it hold you back? Rarely will someone start something new without fear or concern of the unknown? No one wakes up in the morning and says, “I’m going to become a master of art today!” Any skill worthwhile takes years and years of practice to master.

It is true that some may be more inclined to excel in certain areas than others. That does not mean that you can’t do as well or even rise above those with natural talent. It just depends on how much work you are willing to put in. An example of this would be sports. Some are just naturally better at sports than others. Those who aren’t as graceful or fast will have a harder time keeping up in the beginning. After plenty of practice, they can become one of the best members of the team. Why can’t this be applied the same to art?

You are absolutely capable of becoming a master artist! All you need is the proper tools and necessary application of artistic techniques.

Acrylic paintingWhat Common Tools Do Artists Use?

Depending on what kind of art interests you, you will need the tools used to produce the piece. Usually, paper or canvas is the blank slate that
you can use to create your masterpiece. Don’t limit yourself to these, though. Art can be applied anywhere; from your wall to your shoes the possibilities are endless. Now, what do you use to apply you desired ideas? Some prefer pencil and colored pencil, and some prefer pen and ink. Personally, my choice (and the most commonly used throughout the world) would be painting. Acrylic, oil pastel, or watercolor paints are all completely different in texture and in the application process.

Oil pastels have been around the longest and are the most used among professionals. Some experts have even created a guide to choosing the best oil pastel to help newer artists with insider information into the art world.

Acrylic has the ability to dry very quickly. If you make any mistakes, you only need to wait until the paint drys, usually waiting around twenty minutes up to a few hours.

Watercolor paint has the ability to dry very quickly as well. This type is great to use for softer or a lighter application of color.

Breakout Rooms: A New Form of Entertainment Everyone Can Enjoy.

Breakout roomsHave you been on the lookout for a fun way to spend more time with the family? Maybe you are in need of the perfect team building exercise to promote social interaction amongst your employees. Whatever the case might be you don’t need to look any further. A new and exciting game focused on the fascinating world of puzzles and mystery has started blowing up on social media platforms and chat rooms. They are called Breakout Games!

Breakout Games Are Quickly Becoming the Most Popular New Form of Entertainment

  • The Idea Behind This:

You are blindfolded, handcuffed together in a row and then locked away in a room. The Breakout game starts when you remove your blindfold to find yourself in a dark room with all your friends handcuffed around you. You might find yourself chained to a wall or bench. The goal of the game now is to find a way to get out. With the clock ticking you merely have 30 minutes to an hour to solve all the clues left behind that will lead you to your escape. First, you have to figure out how to remove your handcuffs while you are all still strung together. Depending on how well you and the others with you can work together, you will solve all the puzzles and receive the key to your freedom.

  • Gaming Entertainment:

If you are a puzzle enthusiast or just want to have fun with the experience, you are sure to enjoy this new innovative form of gaming. Breakout Rooms are like a virtual reality game that the entire family can enjoy. You will want to make sure that you go in a group of people who are like-minded or at the very least those who work well together. For those who do not get along or work well in a team setting, you will most likely end up arguing the entire time and quickly becoming frustrated. This would result in time and money wasted since no one was able to enjoy the experience.

If you do go with a group that can work together, then you will have loads of enjoyment while trying to figure out how to win your freedom. You can leave at any time if you need because you are not actually a prisoner. This is all just in the name of fun.

Themes and Entertaining Story Lines:

The Breakout game centers have several different rooms all dedicated to a different theme. The subject of each room will be accompanied by a story line particular to the locked chamber. The certain rooms can prove to have more challenging puzzles than others.

A Helpful Tip: Don’t choose the hardest Breakout Room or theme available for your first time. If you end up having so much fun that you want to go back (which will probably happen), you will have already solved all the most challenging puzzles they have to offer. What is the fun if your mind and problem-solving skills are not being put to the test?

No matter what reason you have been looking for a fun new way to build team working skills or spend time with the family, everyone is sure to have an excellent and entertaining time.

What Kind of Virtual Reality Strides Are We Making in 2017?

Over the past year or two, we have started to see an abundance of virtual reality tech. With the newer VR headsets for your phone, you can already receive the feeling of being completely immersed in a virtual world.

Entertainment and Virtual Reality:

Movies have come out with the specific goal of creating the appearance of what we think VR should be. Cinematic theaters have already begun to include VR as an option for viewing films. Providing enough space and room for individuals to jump out of their seats without knocking one another over has proven to be the more difficult task.

Games have stepped up their programs and software to easily integrate into the virtual reality systems of the modern day. One of the coolest gaming activities we are now seeing are the VR gaming centers. These have started popping up all over with the goal of creating the most realistic experience for the user.

While wearing your virtual headset, you are released into the gaming center to start. With the typical appearance of a laser tag course, all you need is to slip on your headgear and fall into your new reality. The senses are tricked by the use of similar objects, wind, heat, cold, and whatever you might need thrown your way to keep you believing in your virtual reality. With sounds and feelings that are meant to be slightly overwhelming, you will completely buy into this new world.

With so many virtual reality movies and fiction based material, what can we expect to see in the real world version of virtual reality?

For the first time ever, you and your friends can play a real life version of a Halo or Call of Duty type first person shooter. Those are not the only options you have in VR gaming, but they do seem to be the most popular.

Virtual reality military trainingWhat Does This Mean For Technology and Medical Advancements:

For those currently working in the medical field, you already know how challenging it can be to properly teach medical students. Without having regular access to cadavers, it is getting even harder to pass down this knowledge. Using virtual reality gear to teach students in the classroom will revolutionize the way our doctors learn and the amount of knowledge they can handle. VR headsets can provide them with the necessary tools to actually look inside a human and practice surgery before ever picking up a real scalpel.

Giving med students the chance to absorb knowledge more quickly and more accurately could mean the difference between a live body and a dead one. When put into this perspective you can see just how crucial this technology could be just for medical advancement in this field. This innovation in the medical community has the potential to change modern medicine. We could even use these kinds of tech to learn how to cure diseases we never thought possible before.

Virtual reality can change the way we see and interact in the real world, not just the virtual one. That is why it will be considered the most important innovation of our lifetime.
