People view or define art in many different ways. In their perspective which consists of reasons why they like or dislike about the techniques. For example, art is the expression of human creative skills and imagination. A painting, design or sculpture can let people express their thoughts and feeling to art.
Throughout history, there have been a few famous artists that most people liked such as Leonardo de Vinci, Pablo Passisco, Vincent Van Gogh. They have created various of painting or sculpture which has caught people attention. You would want to know more about the art because of the picture, colors, and style which makes it outstanding.
One of my favorite art is called the Cafe Terrance at Night by Vincent Van Gosh. The painting has beautiful scenery that caught my eye because it shows a place at night where people are eating and looking at the bright stars. What makes the art even better is the color that stands out, the color yellow and orange because of its brighness.

My Art Story
The dictionary defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power”, expressing artwork/ fine art. It is also defined as “the various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance”, describing more of the visual arts. I am Art. Everyone says the same thing over and over again about art. “Art is all around us,” I am Art. Everyone says the same thing over and over again about art. “Art is all around us,” “Art is everywhere.” Truthfully, it is. Art is perception and conception. Any where there is an eye, there is art. Any where there is a world to be perceived, there is art for a perceiver.
Art for pulls me and evokes emotion. Art is poetry. I find art in poetic words, poetic intertwining of colors, poetic seduction of shapes on a canvas. Art is pure. It is usually imitation or purely influenced by life. Art can elicit feelings of many groupings. You can feel feelings of euphoria, love, appreciation, empathy, surprise, or even negative emotions like sadness, surprise, pain, confusion, or even self consciousness.
Artists dissolve the expectations that their audience may have. They break bounds that sometimes we do not know are optional, and can be broken.
Art for me is release and recycling of the world around us. It is a means to hold onto history, a lot like music. Once it is created in particular space in time, it will remain of that space and time forever. That is the beauty of art.

Art does not have a single definition. Art is literally anything an individual perceives it to be. More importantly, the definition is tied directly to how it makes you feel. Art may be a physical/tangible item and it can also be a thought or mindset.
Personally, art is anything which makes me feel something. For example, I view this earth as art. Both its beauty and ugliness come together to form a piece of art. Various colors, lines, shapes can all be used to describe this earth. Additionally, experiences and specific events can also be used to understand this world as a creative platform.
Within my life, I often try to slow things down and truly appreciate my surroundings. In doing this, I recognize the art that is constantly available to me. With this class, I hope to learn more of the overall history of art. How individuals of past generations understood it and appreciated it. Additionally, I hope to just gain overall knowledge of various forms of art.

To me art means a lot of things. Art can be a way for me to express how I’m feeling, a stress relief, or even something to do when bored. When I was younger my favorite thing to do was go to a plaster gallery and paint ceramics. I think once my parents noticed, that was when I joined an art class. I ironically enough I did art in Zelda’s for a few years. Doing art in Zelda’s was always so structured but I learnt a lot from it. Even though its an art store they didn’t let us use the black paint and we had to mix brown and navy paint to create black. Small thing like that made Zelda’s worth it. Once I got to high school art became so much more to me. I loved it and went above and beyond what was required for my projects. I even had to stay in for lunch to finish them. This all lead my to take A.P art in my junior year of high school. Being in A.P art was like being let loose in a play ground. I was able to paint, draw, and carve whatever I wanted and everything was supplied to me. That year I lived in the art room. This all lead to me taking Art History in my senior year. All I can say is that my favorite time period was Ancient Egypt. Something about it, I just loved. Meanwhile I haven’t done serious art for maybe two years except for small things like color war banners and mascots
Art is a form of communication, through which we express our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires. For me, art is a way to express my imaginations and turn them into a visual form. When I have a stressful day or even have free time, I like to draw and design, it helps refresh my mind. Specifically, I love to draw and design clothes, shoes, and jewelry. I am not good at paintings but I enjoy playing around with colors and do abstract paintings. For me, art has always been an important part of my life, it is something also connects me to my late grandma. She used to love drawing, knitting flower designs and village scenarios on the quilt. Every piece of her artwork tells a story, which has inspired me to think beyond, be creative with my imagination and turn them into alive. I believe art is inside all of us, it doesn’t have to do with painting or drawing, it can be in any form which we use to express ourselves. I hope to learn more in depth about art, the history, the way different cultures and generations have defined art, and how people view art in today’s’ world.
