You know what can be really hard? Making art. Or music. Or poems, clothes, plays, videos, collages, Tumblrs, jokes, photos, stories, interpretive dances—basically, making anything that didn’t exist before you made it. If that idea freaks you out, you’re not alone! But we have some good news. Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne of the Blow are here to coach you through the creative process. They’ve made a ton of art and music, including a record that came out about a month ago. So if you’ve ever stared at a blank page/canvas/screen/stage and felt paralyzed with fear, or wanted to throw something you made across the room, this video is for you.
