Art can be used and found in many different ways and forms. People can use it to express their feelings, people can use it for fun or just to learn more about it.
Now, what if I told you that you can use art to get a word out there. That is what I am writing this post about. I am sure my fellow hub members and editors participated in the Clap for Carers. This shows gratitude for the doctors, nurses and surgeons who are fighting on the frontline just to help us get through this virus. Well, I have done my part by having a display of different papers such as for key workers, NHS, and many more. I even made a Lockdown Diary that I have given the link to at the end of this post. People who are protesting for Black Lives Matter are using different types of art such as Graffiti, banners and writing on cardboard cut-outs. Art can tell a thousand words so using art to speak up is a great new way of communicating and for peaceful protesting. If I told you that I could say a whole conversation to you in art, I think people will think I am crazy. Some people will use art to define their happiness while others can represent depression and anxiety. Especially for people who do not have the ability to talk, hear or see.
Though there are so many good things about this form of communication, there are still disadvantages of using art to speak up. Misunderstanding is a key issue in interacting with others because of everyone having such a diverse imagination they can take in different things in different ways. If it is taken in as offensive or harmful, you could be punished without you doing any wrong things.
In my opinion, art will be a new and fun experience and I think a lot more of us should try it more!
