Love the Arts!!!! Why is art important? Art is everywhere. Our appreciative mind recognizes every form of art in the world we live in. It is not just acknowledging the beauty of an object, a poem or a painting, it is recognizing and accepting anything we see as art. Art is an important part of our lives, as it stimulates our mind. It gives us the opportunity to explore our creative side. Art in any form entertains, informs, educates and enlightens us in every possible way. It gives us the meaning of everything we see around us. Without art, our lives would simply become plain, boring and lifeless. Art is an expression of one’s self. Through art, we can express our emotions, such as happiness, love, sadness or grief. It is our medium to share our hidden talents, and for the world to know how creative we are.
