Art is the field in life and education that is expressive. Art is the characteristic way in which we reflect upon the world. Art is the shaping of materials as each artist strives to understand the human condition. Art is a bridge between peoples of the world as it is a universal language. Every work of art and design allows you entrance into a relationship with others who experience the artistic impression, even if differently. Art is the way to express yourself; a way to design and construct our changing world and as such it is a powerful force of moving the world to transformation!
