    Art is a good way to explain something to a group of people who don't speak the same language because art kind of has it's own language which everyone understands. You can also use a range of different colours to express what the atmosphere is such as yellow which you might use for something happy. My experience with this is that where I live, there are posters/signs which everyone uses even some of my neighbours who don't speak the same language I do.

      Hello modest_river
      I totally agree with you and I understand where you are going with that. I really like the idea of expressing an atmosphere using colours.

    Art is a good way to explain something to someone who doesn't speak our language because some people for example who can't express themselves through speaking, or just feel like they can't express themselves through words often express themselves through art. I know that I like expressing myself through fashion. Now, art is a good way to explain something because you can draw anything.

      Hiya buzzing_grapefruit.
      I love your idea and I believe that it does make sense. I also express myself with fashion and drawing as I also find that it calms me down.

    Art is a good way to explain something to a group of people who don't speak the same language because you can describe, well draw the famous landmarks of your country and you can draw them your favourite place in your country to let them understand what your country is famous for. If they draw and show you, you also get to know a bit about them as well as them getting to know you. I think Art is such a great way to express your emotions and to tel someone how you are feeling without saying anything or using words.

    what do you think are types of people that don't really care about the environment - what job might they have and which country do you think has the kindest culture and best environment at the moment

    eager_reflection here,
    I think that art is a good way to explain something to a group of people who don't speak the same language because it is a universal form of communication. Even if people speak in different languages, a piece of artwork can give them a general idea about something. People in history have used artwork to recount something that has happened or an idea they have. For example, in the Stone Age, cavemen created cave paintings depicting things that happened during that time, like how they hunted and what sort of animals lived during that time. An artist has their own perspective of how they see the world, and the viewers can have their own perspective, and think differently. This is a double-edged sword because even if the artist dislikes their artwork, someone else may find it fascinating and learn from it. On the other hand, if the intention of the art is good, someone may think that is negative. Some people think that different colours represent different emotions. Yellow could mean happiness, blue sadness, red anger, and green envy. Artwork can be therapeutic, and people can feel more relaxed when viewing. Art documents what is happening in the present. Finally, there are some artists who want to raise awareness through their art or photographs about climate change.
    Thank you for reading.
