    Yesterday I went to the release party

    for a local zine that publishes poetry. The topic was Love and Outrage. I initially intended to stay in my bed all day, but I decided this was something I needed to see. So I crawled out of bed, got ready, and went to the venue. All of the poetry and emotions were so raw. I...

    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...

    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...

    Artists are people who are able to express

    their innermost thoughts and emotions into an image or sound that metaphorically represents them.

    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.

    "I’m my masterpiece" We start with

    I had an angsty epiphany this morning

    that 'nobody "REALLY" likes art nouveau or the styles that came after anymore' and that everything that was has just become a 'hipster way of defining oneself'. I realize someone needs to calm me down and tell me 'those self-obsessed manbuns' and 'weird sloppy handcrafted felt...

    Making Art is like Making Love.

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

    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.

    I Believe There Is a Need For expression

    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.

    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...

    This Is Hardly A Story!

    I want to go for this ceremics workshop in a small, isolated village in the hills, in Italy and so wish I had a friend who shared my interest and we could plan to go there together. When will I learn to start enjoying things without needing others? :(

    Art is communication.

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

    Life Without Art Is Meaningless

    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...

    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...
