'Art is a Safe Haven'

Art is a creative outlet while we have time on our hands. It engages our imagination, our energy, and our mental welfare. Everyone can create art and all those who have reached some success had to begin somewhere. During hard times, Art is a safe haven for individuals, helping them engage Heart, Hands, Mind, and Soul! Why not try creating a piece of Art of your own?
