    What does art mean to you?, like what do you think of it? (if you do draw) Why do you draw?

    ART  IS MY LIFE! I have been drawing since the age of 4 or 5 years old and I love it. I then desired to play music and every now and then I will draw still. It's best to not use your logical part of you mind when drawing. The right side (the creative side) is free and is not aware of time and space, just creativity, I recommend "DRAWING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR BRIAN" by BETTY EDWARDS. It's a book that has change my whole approach to creating. She will teach you how to shift to your right side of your brain and your experience will be great in time.

    One thing that will ruin your work. Never think of what time it is. When you draw of create, make sure you really have the time to create and turn off your cell or have someone take messages. I make music in my headphones and I have made my best music productions with my headphones on even drawing.

    art is my everything. it helps me get through every day, and different situations i find myself in. i find that if i'm upset, angry or just need time to think,drawing or painting can help it feels like i can pick up a pencil start drawing and just get through what's bothering me.it also feels like my art listens to me, like when im sad or happy the work created can show that, the emotion.

    i also look at pieces of art and think wow. i mean i think it's amazing how someone like how an artist for example salvidor dali or andy warhol or someone have such an intriging, imaginitive minds to create some of the amazing peices of work that they have.

    I guess I kind of draw as a way of escapism. I can draw someone beautiful (or at least attempt to) in my place even if I'm ugly, fat and spotty. I can make them do the things that I can only ever wish for. It's a great tool to have.

    Yeah sorry to have dampened the mood ^^'

    Art, to me, is a huge subject that spans way beyond merely drawing.  Art isn't in the pen, nor is it even on the paper.  In fact, could you ask an artist from long ago, I'm sure they would tell you that it's something yearning to be shared with from their soul. 

    That yearning can be expressed in more ways than you could imagine...from a work as huge as Mount Rushmore to the ultra-microscopic insignia marking a microchip...from an entire orchestration to the minute noises of kids at play...dance, martial arts, pottery...pretty much anything that grants a creative freedom of expression can be classified as a form of art.

    Yep...even this answer! ;-)

    Art is the talent, skill, abilty you possess to express yourself consciously or unconsciously.
    Art can be divided into three main departments that has other sub departments. These departments are:
    1. Visual art
    2. Performing art
    3. Literal art

    Visual Art: Under this department you have the comercial art and decorative art.

    Performing Art: Under this we have music, drama, etc.

    Literal Art:  Under this we have peotry, essay writing, lyrics, etc

    Art is an art. If I feel hungry I eat. If my mind is creative I do drawing.

    Art is about telling story. You can't call something art without it possessing story.

    i love drawing cartoons, i can draw snoppy, garfield, any cartoon, just name it. I feel happy when someone says: WOW, you can draw like the original artist! That is contentment

    When someone talks about art the first thing that comes in my mind is drawing. I don't know why because I do know that art means way more than paintings and pictures, but this is what I see with the eyes of my mind. I used to draw and I was quite good at it, not trying to be modest because my art teacher told me I am good and I should proceed a career into it, but of course I was a stupid child who refused to give up things and woke up at some point all grown up and without the option to take that road. I used to draw because I loved how that was making me feel: happy, content, peaceful and hopeful. I think about doing it again from time to time, but of course I never find the time to actually do it.

    Art is one of my greatest passions. I have been drawing since I wasa little girl, and I love to do many other artistic things as well, such as watercolor paint, pastel paintings, scrapbooking, crafting with my kids, and so on. I've written a whole blog post on the many different things that I consider to be art forms. Check it out! Art is everywhere. God is a Creator, and has made His people creative, like Him. We are all driven to create in some form or another, and it's wonderful!

    Art allows me to express myself in pictures and the beaut of it 8s very satisfying.  I love to draw but I still I have a lot to learn but in my opinion every stroke and mistake is well worth it.  It is my first love.  Art is the the window to my soul.
