Art is a great way to learn new skills while you express yourself! You can make things that reflect how you feel, and every time you work on your art projects, you’ll get a little bit better at it. There are a lot of different types of art that exist in the world that use different kinds of supplies. If you do art in school, then maybe you’ve seen that you might use crayons, markers, colored pencils, or paint. Outside of those, there are even more things you can use to create cool art projects. In fact, you can even use your computer to make art online and share it with your family and friends! Computer art has become incredibly popular over the past few years because computers are getting stronger, more programs are being created for artists on computers, and there are more resources than ever for artists so they can improve their skills. If they can get better, then you can too!

If you have taken the time to practice your art skills on paper and you’ve tried out some fun art games, you may find that you’re interested in learning more about art and different artists who have come before you. You can visit art museums to do that! There are art museums all over the world, and there may even be one near you that you can hop in the car and visit. But if there aren’t any art museums or galleries near you to borrow inspiration from, that’s OK. There are more ways than ever to check out museums online! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, art galleries and museums all over the world have made it easier to experience them through virtual exhibits and tours. You can even visit galleries in Europe and in states far from where you live in and walk through them virtually so it’s almost like being there in person. Many of these galleries even make it possible to read about the different art pieces you’re looking at so you can learn just as much sitting at home as if you were there in person.

If you want to be an artist, there is so much you can learn just by practicing and looking through art exhibits. Like every skill you learn, practice makes perfect, and in practicing, you may also find that certain kinds of art are more fun for you. Maybe after printing out some coloring pages, you’ll find that you like working with colored pencils, or after playing around with some online art games, you might find that you enjoy making computer art. The possibilities are endless, and you can get your friends and family in on the fun, too! Art has no age limit, and everybody can participate. It doesn’t matter if you’re at home, at school, or on a family road trip; there’s always a chance to create art that will make you smile.
