Art has no satisfactory definition. Though I tried my best and it is my endeavour to make you understand what art is.
In the olden days, art was considered as something that is beautiful, that pleases your eyes and that represents something. Now the definition of art has changed a lot. Art is a medium of expression where the individual and culture come together. It is a process of arranging elements in such a way that it affects and influences senses, emotions, and intellect. It has been defined as a vehicle for the expression or communication of emotions and ideas. It is a superior skill that you can learn by study, practice, and observation.
Britannica online defines art as “the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others.”
Art consists of Form and Genre or Content.
An art Form is the specific shape, elements of art, material, or quality an artistic expression takes for example canvas texture, color, shape of brush, oil paint, etc.
Whereas Content is idea-based. It is a set of conventions and styles. It generally means what the artist meant to portray or the ways in which the work was influenced like nature, religion, or spirituality.
By now, I think you must have understood a lot about art. So why wait, go, and get your art supplies and awaken the artist in you.
