Art Career Ideas for Kids Laminated Poster-The word ‘art’ comes from Latin ars and meant skill or craft based on the Indo-European meaning “to arrange”. Today ‘art’ is generally understood to be the results and process of making something that has not existed before and is not a necessity, as in biological survival.

Artistic expression includes writing (language), acting and dance (movement), music (sound), painting, photography & film (light / visual), sculpting and architecture (form & line), and is sometimes differentiated as being “fine” or “applied”. “Fine art” refers to the “purity of the discipline” or purpose; “applied art” refers to objects created for functional and everyday use where the creator of the work may be called a craftsperson.

Exploring the various art processes heightens awareness of art as a whole. While paying intellectual attention to composition and subject matter, do not ignore the physicality and sensory experience of creation.

7 Psychological Functions of Art -
1. Remembering, 2. Hope, 3. Sorrow, 4. Rebalancing, 5. Self-Understanding, 7. Growth (from Art as Therapy by Alain de Botton & John Armstrong)

FYI - March is Youth Art Month, an annual observance emphasizing the value of art education for fostered skills learned through experience in the practice of visual arts that are not addressed in other disciplines offered in the curriculum.
