Art is Life

By Barbara Dwyer

Art is critical to the development of all people and all cultures.  That bold statement is backed up by decades of research and experiential encounters with people who participate with art.  Art engages creative thinking, fine motor skills, problem solving, math, and spatial relationship skills.   K. Dinsmore said this, “Art illustrates the human experience. – the wonder of it, the bewilderment of it, the whimsy of it, the power of it, and so much more.”

Art is pure.  When undisturbed by convention, art is a pure expression of what lives inside the creator.  It can be dark or filled with light.  It can elicit serenity or a tinge of crazy.  Art therapists assert that art allows us to heal better, to forgive more deeply and to give expression to experiences where words are woefully inadequate.

Art is fun!  Getting dirty and smushing clay is better than a spa treatment.  Splashing paint to simply see what it looks like sparks the imagination.  Building 3D art stimulates wonder and pride.  I ask you this – who doesn’t love to see the pride in a child’s face when she or he creates something new?

Art expresses things that words can’t.  I will always remember viewing Michelangelo’s masterpiece, The Pieta, at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome; it brought me to my knees.  Seeing it in person was the #1 item on my ever-growing Bucket List.   It is, for me, the most beautiful piece of art ever created.  And there I stood.  I can still feel the tear-marked emotions I had standing it in front of it.  Such is the power of art.

The voice of the Visual Arts in our community is getting stronger.  Through the work of the Arts Council of Williamson County we are fortunate to have events in which we can interact with art and artists, enjoy educational opportunities to help us grow and mature, and support artistic expression and appreciation in our schools.

Partner with the Arts Council of Williamson County (a 501©3 not-for-profit organization) by purchasing tickets to our 2019 Artists’ Studio Tour taking place this weekend November 9 & 10 from noon – 5:00 pm both days.  Early bird and student discounted tickets are available.  Children 12 and under are free.
