A few weeks ago I asked my friends to complete the statement “Art is ____.” The responses included the following:
- “all around us”
- “what I try to make each day”
- “where we find it…where we make it”
My bet is how you complete this sentence is based upon your experiences.
Forms of art
There are many forms of art – paintings, sculptures, dance, art, music, poetry (just to name a few). All of them have various forms and mediums. All of them allow a means of expression. All call upon our creative nature.
There are professional and non-professionals creating these various forms of art.
There are therapies that have sprung up around these various art forms. Each is unique in the training they require. Yet all of them strive toward wholeness and a quality life.

These conversations are interesting and informative.
