Art, freedom, and creativity are driving forces of a perfect society!
“Art is standing with one hand extended into the universe and one hand extended into the world, and letting ourselves be a conduit for passing energy.” Albert Einstein
We are surrounded by art and encounter its influence every day. It is hard to imagine a person's life without it. Art dates back to ancient times when primitive people learned to draw their first pictures on rocks.
Over the years, culture has changed. Unlike people who live and die, art is eternal. Works of leading composers: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, after hundreds of years, continue to please and inspire people. We may not know the authors of famous works, but seeing these works or listening to them we can understand they are priceless, because of the feelings they evoke in us. The author, drawing a portrait, composing music, or writing a poem adds his own feelings and thoughts to his creation. The viewer or listener is able to perceive them but in his own way. In any work of art, a person sees the reflection of his inner world.
Art helps people discover more of themselves, realize themselves, immerse into their inner world - the world of their ideas and dreams. It helps to break away from reality as it is, and get into a completely different, opposite world of beauty and perfection. That is why the role of art in a modern society is priceless.
The task of humanity is to preserve art. We must appreciate and cherish what we have since the power of art is capable of turning one’s world inside out!
Art forms mankind’s value orientations. First of all, it concerns children, but this formation continues throughout the life of a person. After all, our values are a complex structure, a network of associations deeply embedded in the consciousness and been adjusted the whole lifetime.
Art is one of those social forces that participate in the interaction of social phenomena and has a great influence on the development of society. In the unity of all its aspects - aesthetic, cognitive, ideological - art comes out as a powerful means of education, which, due to its accessibility, concreteness, and visibility, has a huge impact on people's minds and hearts.
First of all, art forms our feelings. It helps to find out the basics of life ideals. Thus, art contributes to the socialization of man. It introduces him to the culture, awakening the will to the active and creative transformation of the existing order.
Art pulls at our "heartstrings." Participating in creative activities, a person gives vent to accumulated experiences, fears and mental stress. Scientists have proven that people who are systematically engaged in creativity are more stress-resistant, they better learn new information, have more flexible thinking, find optimal solutions in unusual situations and notice the beauty of everyday small things.
The most important thing is not a perfect result, but the process of creation itself. Therefore, go and find your field of creative activity and "pour out" the accumulated baggage of emotions into creativity.
