I love painting! I have been interested in the Arts since I was little. I took several art courses in college as part of my degree in Liberal Arts. As an elementary school teacher, I have used art as a wonderful tool for learning. In my experience, most students loved learning through art.
According to Brittanica a definition of the arts is:
“The arts, also called fine arts, modes of expression that use skill or imagination in the creation of aesthetics objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others..”
There are various traditional categories in the arts. Two of my favorite Art chategories are the popular visual arts, and graphic arts. Some of the other Art categories include: literature, plastic arts, decorative arts, performing arts, music, and architecture.
Presently, I am focused on the visual arts. I enjoy mixing various mediums to create my own unique works. Currently, I am working on an acrylic painting (48”x 64”), which includes some collage watercolor pieces. I encourage you to follow my painting progress, which I have documented in my previous blogs.
I also enjoy various other forms of artistic expression. I like pursuing some forms of art that produce a three dimensional product, such as: sewing, and crochet. Another form of Art that I enjoy is photography.
What form of Art do you enjoy? Please share in the comments. Thank you for sharing!
