With the development of technology and science, some people believe that there is no great value of artists such as musicians and painters. What are the things artists can do but the scientist cannot? Why should we encourage the art area?
With advancement in science and technology, artisans are losing their value. No one is interested in attending live concerts as they can simply download or watch online videos on you tube. No one is interested in theater. The power of live performances has been lost. Literature has been hugely impacted due to the availability of e books. It’s beneficial for the readers as digital technology has made books easily accessible to a greater number of people but it has made difficult for individuals and organizations to produce a sustainable amount of income. Digital technology and modern techniques have negatively influenced the art of painting and drawing. Now it doesn’t depend upon the artists’ skills anymore. Artists today, on the clicks of the mouse, video tools, and digital tools, can control the density of color, the degrees of different shades. That human touch is lost now. Live performances are losing their charm.
While science can only explain why we feel, art conveys what we feel. Scientists can tell you why and how we feel emotions, which chemicals are released etc but they can not make us feel those emotions. A poem, a painting, a song can make you shiver down your spine. While science can help us know, art can make us understand. Art has no limits.
Why art and creativity are important? Because it helps in the mental, emotional, social development. Creativity helps you express yourself without hurting others. Art is a way to deal with emotions and feelings through music, paper, colors, photography which can not be expressed otherwise. It’s enjoyable, motivating and helps in developing positive attitudes towards life. Music helps us in forgetting all our worries and tensions and has such a soothing effect. These are some of the few reasons why we need to encourage the art area. It simply makes life beautiful.
