Reflection on the arts

In a general sense, art is any human activity that draws on emotions and the intellect to create works that have aesthetic characteristics. This groups together different areas -such as sculpture, painting, dance, poetry, cooking, cinema, prints, theater, comics, photography and numerical art- which have evolved throughout the history of mankind.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to continue being artists as they grow up,” said Pablo Picasso.

To understand it, it is enough to look at children who are capable of taking a pencil and scribbling on a sheet of paper long before they can speak: from this point of view, art is synonymous with creativity, therefore, it is important both for the development of skills and knowledge, as well as to implement learning and experience.

Art is closely related to human nature. The different forms of artistic representation correspond to the need or, rather, to the fundamental characteristic of expressing themselves that human beings possess. Art plays a mediating role and a driving force in communication, since the artist through his creation transmits not only emotions, but also messages, and makes us reflect on our existence, social problems or life in general. From this perspective, it becomes a tool that can change or educate a society.
