The many ways of expressing the arts

The Arts Featured image 5

People have always made art. Drawings have been found on cave walls, made by people 40,000 years ago. The Greeks painted pottery and sculpted statues, as did the Romans. Making art seems a fundamental part of being human, whether we like art or not. I would say that no-one on Earth could have not made an item from the arts. You may be thinking that art is just colouring and painting, but the truth is that art can represent loads of things. For example, if you want to be a musician, that means you are pursueing a career in the arts. You may have not realised it yet, but just about everything is the arts. From cooking to singing, you can choose your profession, and that is the arts. Colouring and painting is art in both ways, yet art can be whatever you want it to be- your passion.

I am writing this post to talk about the different types of art and how we use art in everyday life- but just don't realise it. Expressing art is not just about expressing what has been created, but is about expressing yourself and your obsession. The following are the different types of arts I am going to talk about:

  • Drawing/painting;
  • Acting;
  • Writing/narrating:
  • Comedy-writers;
  • Sculpturing;
  • Music-writer.

1. Drawing/painting:

Drawing and painting is probably one of the most well-known and celebrated version of making art out of the ones above. For years it has influenced us and our ancestors, and many people use art to express their emotions. It can represent event the most vaguest feeling with one swipe of a paintbrush (or colouring pencils!). We use drawing in our everday life in several ways, most of which are unprecedented.

2. Acting:

Acting is very common, yet not much widely acknowledged. Although there have been no signs of the past generation performing for the entertainment of others yet, records show that they have had amusement in some way that are highly alike acting. Our feelings are expressing others' when we act, pretending to be that certain character with their certain characteristics. Using acting in our everyday lives is common, but not nesscarily unusual. Many people are pretending to do things, when not. For example, if you really don't want to do something on a day, sometimes you might give out a huge, fake yawn and announce that you are going to bed.

3. Writing/narrating:

Writing is fun, enigmatic and enjoyable in both reading it and writing it. You can make the story your own, and it is really jollificating. Narrating the stories gives you almost the same pleasure at listening to it, with the exception that you might not know what will happen. Many peoples' ambitions are to be an author– I, myself included– and to sell out books for the public to enjoy. Writing is used very much in our life, like when you are at school, or when you are writing a note. The ability to communicate using our wrist is, I consider, a very special talent.

4. Comedy-writers:

Writing stories is one thing, but writing humorous comedies is quite another. In this you need to include a main story, in which you turn into a comedy by making the characters say funny things, and give a funny setting. Writing comedy is not used in everyone's day-to-day life, yet being funny is. This is a wonderful way to make people smile, whatever mood they are in. being funny can used from different points of view–in fact, anything can be achieved if you look at it from a different point of view– as you may not felt as though you have said anything funny, but others will.

5. Sculpturing:

When you sculpt, you are making an object using materials such as clay. This can be anything, a corked-bottle or a model of the Solar System. You can make what you want, as long as you have the materials! Sculpturing is a very fine art and talent, and is used throughout the world. The really good and beneficial thing about sculpturing is that you can even use recycled products and end all the plastic in the oceans and things like that. Sculpturing isn't used everyday, but when you cook, you are technically sculpturing a meal!

6. Conducting/writing/making music:

Writing and conducting music means you probably have to be a specialist at music, but making music isn't that hard. It doesn't even have to be a known instrument–you can make your own! Instead of buying a drum, just use two differently shaped boxes instead of bongos! Music-making can be anything, from just banging piano keys subconsciously to playing a super guitar riff. Music was made billions of years ago, and is still used today! We use music nearly all the time, when we talk, move, hum, or sing!

Thank you for reading my post, and I hope you like it!
