It’s often said that art is life. Art has always been a great way for self expression and a great mood enhancer. It’s beautiful, to say the least, in all the forms, shapes and sizes it comes in. That’s why everyone should have an artistic bucket list in their back pocket.
Artistic activities help you expand your mind, let go of stress, and best of all create great memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. Because of these and numerous other reasons, here are six artistic adventures everyone should experience at least once.
1.Get Creative With Your Wardrobe
Get your inner fashionista on. This might sound a little harder than it is, but with a little inspiration, imagination, and household items, you can very well come up with an outfit that really expresses your personality. Designing a personal outfit will draw out the designer in you, put you in touch with your inner self and create a more confident you as you embrace what you like and dislike in your clothing. Best of all, it’s not an expensive endeavor and can easily become a great pass time hobby.
2.Vlog about an International Trip
Youtube is all the rage these days, with an endless array of videos from people all around the world documenting their experiences abroad. And you know what the great thing about this activity is? You can do the exact same thing too, with your phone, a laptop, and an internet connection.
The next time you go on a cross country or international trip, document the trip into a mini movie or vlog and post it up on Youtube for the world to see. It’s a great artistic expression, a powerful confidence booster and it doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.
3.Create Your Own Piece of Art
You don’t have to be Michelangelo to create some awesome pieces of art for yourself. This can be done with a small canvas and some colors of your choice (maybe some to match your room decor?).
Creating art is a great artistic way to express yourself and decorate your space with something you made by being creative. It doesn’t have to be with paint only, it can be with paper, oil pastels, or even crayons.
4.Audition For A Movie
This one is a big confidence booster and it’s a great way to get a little taste of the world of performing arts. Though you might not get the part you audition for, getting into the room to show off your artistic talent is the challenge. It’s a great way to practice self expression and motion as a form of art. Online hubs like AuditionsHQ.com are great places to start looking for audition options near you.
5.Create A Statement Mural
You can do this in your house or even on a big canvas. There is nothing more rejuvenating than being able to completely recreate a wall with a few brush strokes. Murals are a great way to send a certain message about yourself or even something you strongly believe in. It’s great because it can show off your personality and practice your artistic skills.
6.Completely Redesign Your Apartment
Your apartment decor might just need a breath of fresh air, and that’s the perfect time to completely DIY and re-decorate it. Now, this might take a lot more time and effort than some other artistic endeavors we’ve listed, but it can definitely be worth the investment once all is said and done.
There are plenty of resources online you can use to help motivate and inspire you to create awesome DIY projects. It’s all about getting savvy with your budget and what you have.
Create And Grow Your Artistic Side
Everyone has an artistic side they can nurture to become an overall better rounded person. There is nothing better than being able to express yourself, learn something new, boost your mood and grow your self-confidence all at the same time.
