The universality of art provides an understanding of divergent points of view. Art expresses a visual eloquence and elucidates the intangible. Our exposure to art challenges us to view the world in a different way. Art provides depth to our lives, enriching our world.
Art provides meaningful discourse and personal reflection for all who experience it. Inquiry into "the creative process" helps us challenge ideas and motivates us to embrace experimentation.
As a communicator, an artist understands the importance of interpretation and visual perception in the development of imagery. Artists create powerful imagery with the knowledge of subjects, historical contexts, and the knowledge of an environment. This process helps the viewer recognize the contextual, cultural, and social implications of an artist's imagery.
