Setting up an interest in art

434 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Mullanphy
I don’t have anyone in my life that’s interested in art. My husband is glad that I have an interest in art, but with him, my being interested is as far as his interest goes. I’ve always wanted to have someone to talk to about it though. Especially my spouse since I’m in this marriage for the long haul.

My problem is that I really want to be able to talk to him about it but he gets irritated anytime the topic is brought up. He says he wants to get into it so he can connect with me on something I love but he has a very low tolerance for it. I’m not sure how to make it interesting for someone who cares so little about the subject. I’m also not very knowledgeable so I have a hard time explaining art to anyone.
Please help!

i think you are either interested in are or you are not. Dont try and force him into conversations he knows nothing about. your first step is to establish if he has a yet undiscovered interest in art by taking him out to a few different types of art galleries (contemporary, traditional, sculpture etc) and see what he thinks
