Art forms can be expressed as architecture, fashion, film, video, painting, sculpture, design, home-wares, performance, animation etc.
Art and design are part of our everyday lives, as we live in a world of form.
Artists and designers have created the images and forms that confront us every day, on TV, in advertising, on packaging etc.
We are bombarded by images constantly, and we are affected by everything we see.
Some art today has become a commodity, misogynistic, political, exclusive, and inaccessible to many people.
“Every Picture Tells a Story”
Anyone can be an artist. All young children love to draw and paint and play with modelling paste. They do this naturally from a very early age.
Art is accessible to all of us, it is the art of everyday livingness, for example, the way we arrange furniture in a room, make a bed, create order and harmony in our work and home environments.
Choosing to make our life a work of art means that we add beauty, stillness, and harmony into our lives and the lives of others.
It is our way of connecting to, appreciating and responding to nature and each other.
It is a universal form of expression that crosses all boundaries of nationality and race, and it can give us more understanding about others, and bring to our attention something precious and beautiful. Sometimes it celebrates the every -day.
Living art can be healing, and bring us to a deeper connection to ourselves.
