Art has been a huge part of my life since early childhood. I was initially exposed to art from my grandmother. Growing up, she made me several pieces to display and inspire. Arts and crafts were my favorite past time and I would always try to create something with any material. As a grew older art became a passion for me. It was a way for me to express and communicate my ideas. I also got to see my progression in technique and head space. Art allows me to communicate with people from different cultures and has remained a constant in my life. Even while note taking, if I sketch during a lecture I can better retain the information. Art is essential for me because not only do I have a creative outlook, but I also get clear my head and focus. Just to clear things up I am not talking about one medium or one style, I practice and appreciate all art forms. If it requires creative energy, it attracts me. No matter what I go through or where I travel, art is always there to assist me. It is my foundation and center, even more so than my actual family and our traditions.

It’s really interesting how things like art and music are appreciated throughout cultures regardless of its origin; It doesn’t matter where you come from, who your family is, or what culture you identify with.
There are a lot of benefits to creating art. I am a visual artist and art helps me in a lot of ways. I create art not only to make something that looks nice, but also because it’s a stress reliever. When finals come around I start painting and it’s the only thing that really gets me through that stressful time.
Great post! I have always looked at art as a way to express myself. I love how art allows you to be different and how it represents how you are, your culture, or just your current feelings at the time. I wish i would have stuck with making art because i had a passion for it.
I have always loved art and the way that people can be so creative! Although I do not have one single creative bone in my body, I have always wished I was able to express ideas through art and am always in awe when I see a great piece of art, no matter what form it is in. I think it is amazing how one piece of art can communicate so many different things to its viewers.
Great post. I love art . The main platform of art that I focus on is music. Art through sound creates vibes without even need for sight. Art is interesting because it has many forms of beauty.
I love the thought and concept of this post. Art is a powerful tool that allows us express ourselves and leave a legacy/record. Some people are visual learners, so not only did you utilize this for your education, but also used it for your communication. The legacy that art leaves behind is essential to understanding what times were like during the artists era. This is crucial because you wont know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been.
