Rules about Rules

One of the rules of the arts should be to learn all the rules and then break them when necessary to let the genius in you comes through. Rules should not become a prison for the mind, binding it. They should be about how to release the mind so that it soars in the sky of excellence.

Margaret Agusta I agree absolutely. Rules are tools toward creation and because the very nature of the arts is subversive (toward the exploration of possibilities beyond those already set out) people in the arts will always need to bend and stretch those tools and even break them when necessary to achieve the artistic potential inherent in the creative process.
