What is art?
It depends whether or not you want a textbook definition.
Art is defined through many different ways. Webster’s dictionary has a few definitions of what art is. Art isn’t just a paintbrush, some paint, papers and pencils. Art is much deeper than that. Art is expression. This can be seen through music, fashion, writing and so much more. Art is creativity.
Art through fashion is putting pieces of clothing and makeup together. In some cases, the clothing items don’t match but this doesn’t mean it isn’t creative. Applying makeup involves being somewhat creative. Lack of creativity can be seen through fashion especially when it looks like someone literally threw something on. Makeup brings the clothing together. A splash of color one someone’s face can be all that’s needed to bring an outfit together or even cause it to fall apart.
Art through music can be felt through the sound it provides. The words and beat flowing through speakers to the listeners’ ears. The sound of the beat and how it’s constructed to bring together the words to a song. Music is like food for the soul. It can help you relate to a situation and sometimes help you get over it. Different forms of music is what makes it art.
How can writing be art? Writing causes you to form a picture in your head as you read it. Writing puts you in a creative realm where what you are reading may not be real. Through writing, you can escape reality even if it’s for a moment. Writing is a form of expression and art.
