10 Ways to Inspire Your Heart with Art

Art is valued and appreciated for many varied reasons. Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, observed on January 31 each year, is a time to celebrate all art forms – and their effect on the heart.

Art allows a person express individual imagination and creativity. It is incredible how artists reveal their creativity: what they see in their minds and feel in their hearts.

Art can push and stretch the mind but also evoke powerful feelings. For instance, many paintings make a political statement or bridge a gap over a cultural barrier. Others capture a beautiful scene that can forever be appreciated. Art can play a significant role in some types of therapies and in raising awareness.

Enjoying art isn’t only the physical, visual form, such as paintings, drawings, and sculpture. It can be an experience: cinema, literature, dance, and theater.

  1. Given my love for books, I am tempted to agree with the statement that literature is the highest form of art.. But I am also trying to be fair to all the art forms I love 🙂 and dance, music, drawing/painting, other crafts, all give me immense joy..
    I wrote about art books as well for the 30th to celebrate this day!

  2. I haven’t heard of this day but love it. Lia is home sick today so many this will be a good day for her and I to do a quiet craft.

  3. I love art, and I didn’t realize tomorrow is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day!!! I’ll have to plan something special that you suggested. We must have been on the same wavelength because I wrote about how high to hang artwork!!! Have a great day.
