Learning about art is sure to add value to your life. You will see the world in new ways by gaining a new appreciation of form, color, yourself, and the human condition.
Great works of art can be viewed online, but there is no substitute for being in the presence of an artistic piece. Visit a local art museum. Pay attention to which pieces move you. Then, try to identify why they do.
Reading about art is another route. From Realism to Impressionism, Rembrandt to Picasso, art has a fascinating history and philosophy. Begin your search online or visit your libraryâ€™s art section.
Of course, you can jump right in and get your own hands dirty. Make your own art. Art classes can be expensive, but they can be worth it. Learning clay, glass, or other media from a teacher can save you the frustration of learning on your own. For drawing and painting, online resources such as videos and tutorials are a fantastic way to learn at your own pace.
Art can seem intimidating for those who are just beginning their journey, but there is no need to be timid: You can start from any direction. Just start!
