    It's true because demonstrations explain more than words

    Why art is a good way to communicate with people who don’t speak the same language?
    Everyone has a different way of communication, some talk, some write, some use symbols and there are much more ways to communicate, but there is one way of communication that I love the most and that is art. Art is the use of certain materials to create a picture, used to express one’s mind or the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Art is also a gateway to different imaginations. People read art differently and every piece of art has a story to tell and in every story is an adventure that indulges you deeper into the masterpiece. I think the reason why art is a good way to communicate with people who don’t speak the same language is, it speaks to everyone, that even someone that can’t read and those who don’t speak the same language will be able to understand the picture and from the picture they can get the message even if the words on the picture might not be exactly like what he/she is thinking.

    Yes, I think art is a good way of communicating with people that don’t speak the same language because everyone can understand by the pictures even the world says, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” you show a piece of art and the picture tells them what you want them to do.

    Art is a very good way of communicating with people who don't speak the same language. Maybe one person might be speaking English and the other French, there won't be effective communication since they don't understand themselves. Art comes in various forms, when they use art to communicate, they will understand each other and be better able to communicate their thoughts, ideas and plans.

    Art is a good way of communicating to people who don’t speak the same language because; with arts which involves drawings, theater presentations, drama, dance drama, choreography etc messages can be sent. With art a lot of people’s lives are changed for the better as they get to be entertained as a result, heavy burdens are lifted off the shoulders of afflicted people, they begin to experience peace in their minds and their total outlook of life, art enables messages to be well interpreted and people are better able to work together as one.

    Art is a world language because people around the world use it to introduce different things to people around the world such as languages, subjects, and other things. Art is a good way because when it is shown to someone, it makes it easier for the person to interpret it because of the features.
    These are my reasons why art is a good way to explain something to a group of people who don’t speak the same language.

    Art is a global language to me because many people around the world don’t speak the same language because we all are from a different dialect and so we can’t all understand each other. Art actually first originated from the cavemen because they wrote in caves and on walls too, then there weren’t any paper to write on. So they used walls to draw and express their feelings. Art is an expression because, imagine you can’t speak and you have a great idea, what will you do? The only thing that will express your idea is art because you can’t talk. Again even though you don’t speak the same language with someone and they to be doing something wrong, won’t you correct them? I believe one good way/ the only way to do that is by art. So you see we all need art in our daily activities.

    People will understand. Art can help people avoid misunderstandings since this can happen because they don’t speak the same language.
    Art is a means of communication because people will see what the writer meant in a visual form. Art may look silent but it speaks volume.

    Art is a good way of communicating to people who don’t speak the same language because the world is made of people from different regions who seem not to understand/speak the same language hence with art it is easier to communicate either with use of sound or pictures.

    Art is a good way of communicating to people who don’t speak the same language because with arts things are communicated via visual displays as what you wish to pass across is visibly seen and could be self explanatory. It is a good way to explain what will happen in the future, what is happening in the present and what has happened in the past.

    Art is a good way of communicating to people who don’t speak the same language because if not for art history wouldn’t have been possible. It was true art that the early man was able to communicate and leave information that we are able to make reference to in our present day today. For example carving on rock and in caves.
