Art has existed for many years in our society. We have seen paintings in caves and rocks. However, many of us don’t take art very seriously. We think it’s something anyone can do. But art needs lots of creativity and is very important for our society for the following reasons.
1. it is a natural behavior
Just like language is a natural behavior of expressing oneself, so is art. When children are young, they draw to express themselves. They try to draw something creative that reflects their thought process.
2. Media for communication
There are different types of language. You might not understand a particular language. But art is a universal form of communication. Everyone can understand it. With art, you can share your ideas and thoughts with other people.
3. It talks about culture and society
When you look at the paintings made in caves and rocks by the ancient people, it gives us an idea about their culture. So, art is a form of preserving culture. It reflects a society’s beliefs, cultural values, etc.
4. Attracts tourism
People visit many places because of art, like the Louvre in Paris or Granville Island in Vancouver. Art doesn’t only mean expensive things; these are architecture and sculpture as well.
It is possible to develop a strong sense of community belonging with the help of art. It can bridge the gap between different cultures. Art is a very important part of our culture and all kinds of artworks must be highly encouraged.
