Do you like art? Whether it is doodling on a piece of paper or using your hands to create a picture, it is still art. It can come in different shapes and sizes. It can come in millions of colors. It can come in several voices and dimensions.
They say that art is a reflection of your soul. When you create art, whether it is with your hand, with your voice or with a musical instrument, you are allowing the people who view your art to take a peak into your soul. That is why art, in any form, is important. It allows you to let a part of your come out, to explore and to have fun.
It is the same way for those who view art and appreciate it. Different people appreciate different kinds of art. There are those who travel far and wide just to be able to see an original art work at the Louvre. There are those who like to sit in a theater and watch “Les Miserable” over and over again as their hearts sing with the actors. There are those who simply like to look at nature and how the trees, the birds, the flowers and the sky transform to these wonderful windows to their souls.
Art is important. As the saying goes:
Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time
