Art gives us the ability to express ourselves. Through that expression, we communicate by drawing on our own unique emotions, thoughts and experiences. When you see and study another's art, you're seeing the world through their eyes. When you  create, you're letting the world see through yours. How important  is art in our life?

Why to choose Art? 

Art gives us meaning and helps us understand our world. Scientific  studies have proven that art appreciation improves our quality of life  and makes us feel good. When we create art, we elevate our mood,  we improve our ability to problem solve, and open our minds to new  ideas.
