We live in a world of the arts. The arts are our outlet for human expression. We articulate all our emotions through literature, performing arts, and visual arts. We have always been artists. We are all artists, no exceptions. Our ancient forefathers foretold of greater things to come as they attempted to make crude drawings in caves. Centuries have passed and the arts have evolved so much that we have elevated them into a science. Illustrious careers have come out of different arts. Whatever our state in life is, we can hone and perfect our art in different ways. Joining arts competitions, win or lose, can bring in a lot of benefits and opportunities. Some time in our lifetime, we should try joining one or two arts competition for it can, among other things, hone our skills, lead to possible prosperous careers, make us win huge cash prizes, and perhaps gain us worldwide recognition.
The arts branch out to so many disciplines. If you’re into conveying concepts and ideas, then you might try communication arts. You can try any of the following: design, advertising, typography, interactive, illustration, and photography. If you’re into painting, then you can try your luck in any of the fine arts: drawing, watercolor, acrylic, and other media.
The Visual arts include skills in ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, film making, and architecture. Other visual arts deal with industrial design, graphic design (traditional and digital), fashion design, interior design, and decorative art. Disciplines in performing arts, conceptual art, and textile arts are also considered as visual arts.
As you can see, there are so many disciplines in the arts to choose from. As they say, whatever your heart desires, follow it. In our grade school days, we were exposed to different art forms. We sang, we wrote, we drew, and we painted. Once in a while, our teachers encouraged or maybe forced us in a good way, to join in arts competitions. Regardless of the results, joining arts contests are fun and exciting. We make lots of new friends and build slowly our self confidence. More importantly, we gradually hone our skills in the hope of reaching perfection someday. Practice really makes our skills perfect.
When we reach high school or college, we either bring to the next level our arts skills or abandon them altogether because of the burden of studies and growing up to maturity. Kids who later on graduated from college and brought their arts skills with them often land in successful careers in the arts. If you perfect your passion and skills in your chosen arts through joining arts competitions, then it’s very possible to have a good paying job. Big companies often sponsor arts competitions at a professional level. Winners may end up being hired by such companies.
