The power of viewing and creating art is proven, but sometimes individuals hesitate to begin their artistic journey because they fear not being good enough. The beauty of art, however, is that there is no wrong answer. You can find and create art out of nearly anything, and its meaning subject to your life experiences.
Simply viewing art can hold emotional and mental value, too. Looking at art increases blood flow to your brain, meaning your brain is working harder and improving its function.
Creating and viewing art has never been easier than today. Searching “art” online alone produces billions of results and chances to engage in creativity. The Internet isn’t the only easy way to access the benefits of art. Here are a few tips on how to easily enjoy or create art:
See what your city has to offer. Most larger cities have begun featuring street artists’ work along buildings or in public installations. Go for a walk around your town to see if you can spot any obvious (or hidden) works of art. If your town doesn’t have a nearby art museum or gallery, search for local artists through word of mouth or social media to discover art installations near you.
Explore different mediums of art and keep tools within reach. The variety of artistic mediums is seemingly never-ending, meaning there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer watercolor painting, woodcutting, photography, or all of the above, you will most likely have a hard time getting into the medium without the proper tools.
Once you choose your preferred medium, go to a cheap art store to pick up the essentials and keep them stored in a place within reach in case any inspiration strikes. Start with this list of mediums to try and narrow down your interests.
Get some chalk. You may remember playing with chalk on the concrete of your driveway or in the street when you were a kid. You most likely didn’t consider it art back then, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t. Get back in touch with your inner child and create something with colorful chalk. Invite your grandchildren or neighborhood children to join you.
Go to a figure drawing class or create your own. Figure drawing classes offer a great way to challenge yourself and your abilities. They may seem intimidating at first, but they can be very beneficial in practicing your drawing. Many figure drawing sessions are free and you can find them by searching for ones close to you online.
For help finding figure drawing classes offered in your area, search “Figure Drawing Poses Reference” online and practice your skills while viewing a photo on your personal device.
