“ART CAN BE MADE WITH CRAYONS, OR IT CAN BE MADE OF CRAYONS.”
By now, you’ll probably be wondering what this is going to be about. ‘What Is Art?’ I mean, that’s an easy enough question, right?
‘What Is Art?’ This question has been playing on my mind for a while now. When I say the word ‘art’, what do you think of? Your daughter’s drawing pinned on the kitchen pin board? The Mona Lisa? A painting? But is that all there is to art – a mere mark on a canvas?
Being a member of deviantART, I often browse the community comments and one comment that I come across far too often is the classic ‘that’s not art’. As far as I’m concerned, art is not a ‘just’ a talent or a skill, but an expression of creativity. Drama. Music. Writing. Puppetry. Drawings. Photography. Paintings. It’s all art – an expression of creativity.
So, I ask you readers, what is art to you?
