Art

About

Art demonstrates a varying skillset of mankind. Whether it be visual, auditory or performative – artwork is an expression of thought and feeling. To express oneself, an artist has to use a material of some kind. How this material is shaped and showcased presents the thought process of the artist. Though portraying the thought process is important, developing one’s skills in gathering and molding materials complete the style of an artist.

 Artistic education involves not only being able to make art but also to interpret it. When studying arts it is crucial to gain personal creative experience but also to learn about art history. This helps develop a personal style which makes or breaks every student. One should have a good grasp of their technical skills and stylistic expression. Once you are able to combine the two to complement each other you’ll become a step closer to acquiring your personal artistic style.  We can help guide you until you achieve your goals.

Finding Your Artistic Style

It might seem difficult for an individual to find their artistic path. Most often this entails a form of storytelling through a piece of art, an imitation of reality, expressing a deep emotion or provoking a thought in your audience. The best art questions the world, so think about what question you want to pose rather than what the answer might be. The key is to do this creatively and with an intent to inspire.

Types of Arts

Applied Arts

Applied Arts

This category includes applying characteristics of art to everyday objects. It is different from visual art in serving a practical purpose without an intellectual basis which, for example, fine arts provide. Though applied art often overlaps with visual or decorative arts, the main difference would be in the practicality and use of applied arts. They include fashion design and graphic design.

Decorative Arts

Decorative Arts

Appealing objects which don’t serve a functional purpose they often fall into the category of decorative arts. This is where we find aesthetic architecture and interior design. This category does not only involve displaying beautiful objects but the process of making them, too. Decorative arts can also include photography or colossal sculptures.

Performing Arts

Performing Arts

This art involves theatre, dance, and even interactive media. The main characteristic of performing arts is that they are done in motion, as opposed to visual arts which are mainly static. Performing artists express themselves through moving, singing or dancing. This is often done in relation to objects or a stage scene.

Visual Arts

Visual Arts

Every type of art includes visual stimuli. Whether it be a painting, a sculpture or a video every form has a visual aspect to it. Even architecture and interior design sometimes fall into visual art. Visual art also includes fine art. The earliest forms of visual art entail the creation of images or objects.

The Many Uses Of Art In Modern Society

The presence of art can be found in many instances in modern society. Think about the Eiffel Tower. This gigantic construction has been getting acclaim for over a century now. Consider the modern approach to graffiti which broaden the idea of political statements or aesthetic expression. The urban and modern world inspires and puzzles the modern art world and thus remains a prominent subject. What is more, the image of the modern world is shaped by modern art.
