On the Sew Much Craftiness blog, we have discussed a lot of fun craft projects. But when it comes to the term “arts and crafts”, there is obviously more to it! In this article, I wanted to discuss some forms of creativity that involve the arts. So let’s get started!
One hobby that I have enjoyed for years but have especially focused on this year is photography. While it may seem easy to snap a photo and have an instant masterpiece, taking fabulous photographs takes some effort. For example, you will need the right equipment to make sure that your photograph is crisp, clear, and not blurry or grainy. You will also know what makes a great subject, and how to present that subject in the best possible way.
While many individuals are photographers by trade, some choose to make extra money on the side by uploading their photographs onto stock photography websites such as Shutterstock and Bigstockphoto. This may be something to pursue if you want to share your pictures with the world!
Another of the arts? Dance! There are many forms of dance out there, my favorites being ballet and belly dance. Not only are these forms of dance beautiful and feminine, but they are great for the body if you’re looking for a fun way to squeeze in some exercise.
No matter what type of dance you are interested in, taking a class or even watching beginner videos on YouTube is an excellent way to express some creativity. If you’re good with sewing, you can even sew up your own dance costume for a special performance.
When you think of “the arts”, does painting or sketching cross your mind? With famous artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Pablo Picasso, it’s common to primarily think of this form of art linked to that term. Sketching and painting is a wonderful way to express creativity and make beautiful works of art. If you are interested in learning how to come up with professional-looking images, click here.
Poetry is probably the oldest artistic hobby of mine. I have regularly written poetry since I was thirteen years old, and I really enjoy it. You can sit outside on a lovely day with your notebook and pen and write to your heart’s content. And while poetry does involve a lot of specific structure and rules, as long as you are enjoying yourself and finding a way to express your creativity in a positive way, you can be a poet! As with anything, practice and dedication will make perfect.
In conclusion, love for the arts is an excellent thing to have as there is no wrong way to express your creativity through art. We by no means covered all of the arts in this post but these mentioned certainly make a great start when it comes to cultivating a new artistic hobby.
