Art is all around you. It is not only in the ability to paint, sketch and draw, but in other media as well. Creating a sculpture takes the skill of an artist. Abstract painting, or creating clay models is a form of art. Art is actually all around you, in every shape and form. Take the time to look at your surroundings in a different manner. Look at a tree, it is not even, it is not straight, it is not brown. It has texture, and shading. Most importantly: no two objects are alike.
