    The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily

    life off our souls.... it may be music, sculpture, painting...anything taking our breath and making us grateful of being alive. The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance, which may be different for each of us. When I...

    Apart from music and books(Oh

    and cats) Art is something that it's necessary in my life. It can't be a lack of art in my life because if so, i would go crazy and insane, sad and useless. When i imagine a story, i draw the characters, the city, their favorite things, etc.. When I'm sad i paint, with black...

    Trying to get back into the swing of things.

    This is my first ever attempt at a somewhat 'realistic' portrait.. But its hard to draw someone so perfect, perfect? Can you guess who it is?!? Clue.. He is one of the sole reasons of my desire to stay positive. Pfft. Like that helps.

    I Saw This The Other Day...

    ...and I thought it was apt. The Earth - without art, is just Eh... Art is human essence made palpable. The human drive to leave a mark in the echoing space of the universe is one of our most touching and poignant urges.

    Moon Flower

    This flower is not visible at day, or when light shines on it. It's also not visible when there is no moon that night. It's werewolves, vampires and more. You'd think duh a thing was impossible to see, but, fortunately, you're wrong. Moon flower never ever rests, it's always on...

    Art can be a gift so very altruistic in its

    conception. Altruism is the gift of something with no defined and egoistic hope of return. Van Gogh was driven to paint in his mania. He yearned to understand his gift yet it consumed him, because he was always seeking to capture the essence of existence, in a face, a flower...

    I believe that even in nature we can find some

    forms of the most beautiful art ever. But art is just not about photographs or paintings, it's what inspires the artist to take these photos or draw or paint these drawings. I turn to art for so many things whether I just want to doodle, or spill my feelings out into a picture...

    Get It Out Of Me!

    Art, as an idea, puts people off; it sounds too grandiose.  It has something about it that suggests self-glorification, narcissism, all those evil selfish things.  Or, worse, some kind of technical skill - perspective, tone, grammar or trying to get the glint in someone’s...

    Making Art is like Making Love.

    Often messier and not usually as tasty, still both create feelings, good, bad, and ugly.

    ART!

    Art was the first form of communication, and quite possibly the best way to see inside another human's brain.  So art is needed for communication if nothing else.

    And I Detest The Fact That My School Clearly Favors Sports Over Any Type Of Art.

    I love art. I love to draw, paint, to sing, to play instruments... The list goes on. But my school doesn't really care for any of that. They love you if you play sports. The choir and band are poorly, if at all, supported and the regular art classes are filled with people who don...

    Art is communication.

    Ideas. Feelings. History. Medicine. It lifts your psyche to new ways of conceptualising.

    I literally would not be alive were it not

    for music. So many nights I've lain awake trying to smother my thoughts with my headphones, crying tears whose emotions I can't always place, with my soul somewhere dark and cold and my heart wondering whether it can escape my rib cage. If I didn't have the comfort of music to...

    Whether it be through writing, music, painting, drawing or making some god-awful conceptual art piece, at least you are expressing your thoughts and emotions through something.

    An Instinct For Beauty

    I once heard one of my favourite authors - John O Donohue (sadly now deceased) - suggest that the crisis of our age was not a financial crisis, but a crisis rooted in the loss of beauty. He phrased it better of course. Though I can only partially picture what he was describing...

    When I furnish a home at the conclusion of any

    Art is sometimes seen a a luxury.

    It is not needed to maintain our bodies like air food and water. However, a world without art would be devoid of so much. It enriches our daily life so much in many subtle ways.

    For me, I think art is a necessity no matter what form it comes in. Whether it's theatre, music, visual art, dance, writing, film, anything where emotions are expressed, I think it's something that should always be available for people to explore and enjoy. Honestly, art is a way...
