The Importance of Art in Your Daily Life
Art surrounds life, all people in every location, without us being aware of it. Since time began, art has existed as long as man has. It is a huge part of our culture, which shapes our ideas, and vice versa, and provides us with a deeper understanding of emotions, self-awareness, and more. Cave paintings to Picassos.
Many people fail to realize how art impacts their daily life. Everyone uses art on a continual basis. The majority don’t know how much of a role art plays in their lives and just how much we rely on art, in all of its forms, in our everyday lives.
Why is art important in our daily lives and why is Arts on Erie needed? Because we are surrounded by art, and without it, the human race will not be as we know it.
