In our everyday lives, we have fallen oblivious to everything in which we can perceive as art. We go from point A to point B without time to appreciate the art around us. Our daily activities all contain art, whether it be watching television, cooking, cleaning. The house you live in is a work of art. However art drives us to do many of the things we do and just neglect; whatever our hobby is.
Art is what is used to get someone interested. Simple colors can stimulate one to even become hungry. Art is useful especially in advertisements, where we see an ideal form of foods, whether it be McDonalds or the fanciest restaurant, it stimulates our brain to want to eat. The reason why I like Chemistry and will future be furthering my studies in that subject is because of art, all the physical and chemical properties are works of art.
All these pictures drive our lives; art has genuinely driven mine and I have a newfound appreciation for it.
As well as this. Even as simple as my vary hobby: I am a competitive 'Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012' player (fighting video games). Here, I chose my character, 'Rose', who is just so much more depth to her now that I understand how her character model has been made. She is a form of art. The methodical way that the video game designers created a two-dimensional plane with three-dimensional characters is art within itself; it requires a ridiculous amount of technique.
What am I getting to? Take in consideration everything you do. I'm 100% sure that each activity involves some sort of Art, whether it be physical or mental. That's something that's now engraved in my brain; I used to think that Art was ridiculous and it was not worth my time. And yes, these two classes that I'm taking have opened my eyes, that there is so much more to art than just simply drawing.
