The thing is, art is more than just painting and drawing. There are so many art forms that you can indulge into for fun, to de-stress, and to enhance your creativity. So today, let’s take a look at some of the different ways to do art to increase your creativity level, as well as to boost your imagination.
Different Ways to Do Art That You Can Enjoy
Of course, nothing beats the classic. There is something joyous about indulging in the creative process of painting that is often unpredictable. We tend to think that we got everything under control and in place when we immerse ourselves in this activity, but we make mistakes from time to time. Sometimes, the results are different from what we wanted but the result isn’t really the important thing because painting is about enjoying the creative process and learning that it is okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them and use them as pathways for improvement.
Sculptures are a beautiful representation of the human mind and have a unique capability to create fantasies, but it can be difficult to try for beginners. And it can be expensive, too. However, a variation of sculpting that is easier and cheaper has been with us for centuries and that is clay sculpting. There are different types of clay available that you can choose based on your preference, style of sculpture, and skill level. In addition, kits with complete inclusions to start this craft are also readily available in arts and crafts stores as well as online shops.
If you’re low on budget for buying art materials and still want to do some artsy things, then you should try digital art because first, you have your gadget/s with you and second, anything is possible with technology. Thanks to our phones, tablets, or laptops, we can experience the creative process of painting, sketching, drawing, calligraphy, and even 3D art like sculpting and modeling without spending too much! Thus, it is also more cost-efficient and convenient because mistakes are easily corrected and they don’t require a physical space in your room to store your creations because they can be stored in a cloud folder in your gadget. However, it still has a different feeling compared to using real art materials. Some textures in real art are hard to imitate and result in digital art often lacking in dimension and depth.
Sometimes, you just gotta feel the beat and groove out with your spit, especially if you’re feeling a bit frustrated with everything that is going on in your life. The arts are not just visuals, it also includes performing arts that can help you release your emotions on a whole different level. If you’re new to performing arts and afraid that people might judge your dancing skill, you can always lock your room and raise the volume so that you can be yourself without the fear of judgment from others. Or, you can do little dance lessons that can help you improve.
Whether you like to dress up to express yourself or to stand out from the rest of the crowd because of your style, fashion design is a great way to take things to a whole nother level. In this type of art, you will be able to design clothes, learn how to accessorize or make accessories, how to sew, pattern-making, textile-making, learn fashion history and many more. The thing is, you don’t really have to go to fashion school to learn all that. You just need the internet, a sketchbook (or a tablet if you want to create your designs digitally), and a whole lot of creativity and imagination. If you want to get into the practical side, you can always rework your clothes that are no longer in use and create something new from them that you can use or gift to a special loved one.
