Art is a unique expression that only humans are able to create and appreciate. Whereas other animals live to survive, humans live to create and express themselves in ways that speak to the soul.
Art has been a part of the human experience since the beginning of humanity, with cave drawings having been discovered from thousands of years ago. Fortunately, art has continued and evolved over time and has spread through the world.
