how to art

Art surrounds life, all people in every location, without us being aware of it.  Since time immemorial, art has existed as long as man has. It is a huge part of our culture, which shapes our ideas, and vice versa, and provides us with a deeper understanding of emotions, self-awareness, and more.

The Importance of Art

article at a glance

Many people fail to realize how art impacts their daily life. Everyone uses art on a continual basis. The majority doesn’t know how much of a role art plays in their lives and just how much we rely on art, in all of its forms, in our everyday lives.

Why is art important in our daily lives? Because we are surrounded by art, and without it, the human race will not be as you know it.

Art in the Home

Everything from a delightfully patterned quilt on the bed or even your decorative tea towels and teacups can be considered a form of art.  Our brain is just conditioned to think that these type of items are not art when it’s only for decoration.

Art and Music

It has a positive impact to people’s moods and perspective. It can boost productivity and one’s motivation and determination. Similarly, when stress is high, many people find that relaxing to calming music is something that eases the mind.

Site-Specific Art

One of the most common trends in the tourism industry is hospitality art, which utilizes art to invite guests and engage them more throughout their stay. Corporate art inspires workers and boosts productivity using art inside the workplace. Hospital art, or healing art is also one way of helping patients recover faster and their family and healthcare workers to regain their composure and stay calm.

People think that science and technology are superior to art. But art makes life worthwhile. It may not be vital to fulfill our basic needs, but it does make life joyful. As we continue our journey of a fast-paced life with moments of quick decisions and fragmented thoughts, art allows every moment to be memorable. 

Art // personal experience

by Alexandra Galkina

Hi, my name is Alexandra, I have been doing art for almost 20 years. I'd say that professionally, despite that I did not graduate from any art school. I majored in English, received the diploma with honours, and I have been fond of languages for almost as long as I have been practicing arts.

Art is what we do

In fact, the theme of my diploma was a kind of "performance" because of the comical situation that I made during the presentation of my thesis in front of the committee made up by professors. My work was about stylistic means as an expression of the author's style in the work of the Scottish writer Irwine Welsh. After telling the professors about my thesis, they were so confused that said nothing. Only my favourite phonetics teacher chuckled as she listened to how seriously I parsed teenage Scottish slang with some hidden messages.

German artist Joseph Beuys, one of the founders of the international artistic movement Fluxus, said: “Everyone is an artist”. This presupposes that any living person somehow comprehends and creates his life, as its author, “performing” it in a way. I also like the saying by another artist, Carl Andre: “Art is what we do, culture is what they do to us”. We do what will later be called culture, art is primary in relation to it. In the process of teaching the language, I realized that I would like to share my interest with those who ask the same questions, including largely philosophical ones. The transfer of knowledge is a very important part of human life, teaching for me is also the exchange of experience. This is also the inspiration that I usually find in everyday life itself.

That’s all by now.

Stay amazing <3
