Being artistic and wanting to create more art does not necessarily mean you have to own a canvas, a paintbrush, and a whole lot of time and talent to make a decent art piece. Traditionally, a young person would enroll in a course to learn about a particular skill and spend a lot of money on all the necessities needed to start the project. It can be overwhelming to get started, especially for younger generations, since many workshops can be pretty expensive and time-consuming.
However, we have learned in recent years that many activities can be moved online, and creating art is no exception.
Adolescents must be able to express themselves artistically. Art has been proven to boost overall happiness and decrease stress levels. It also develops creative skills, a highly required skill in today’s job market.
Digital art has become quite popular since it is a new and exciting field to explore endless possibilities for creative expression in youth. It includes a broad range of art, including digital paintings, 3D modeling, illustration, animation, and much more. Digital creation offers the use of different techniques and styles without worrying about the cost of the materials. Recent studies (Le, 2023) suggest the use of digital tools actually increases creativity and overall creative skills in students. It is a great way to encourage young people to explore their creative side.
There are a lot of different types of digital art. Some of them are common in our lives, such as 2D Computer Graphics, Digital Photography, Photo-painting, 3D Computer Graphics, Pixel Art, Digital Photography, Digital Collage, 2D Digital Painting, and 3D Digital Painting. It is usually done on a drawing tablet and with a stylus, a tool that acts as a pencil, brush, or blender. Here are some examples of different kinds of digital art.
Digital art is also easier to share with the world through online platforms like Instagram, Behance, and DeviantArt. Those platforms also create a sense of community and collaboration with other young artists. But perhaps the most significant impact of digital art is the new way we experience art. It offers a more immersive, interactive, and unique experience of creating and showcasing your work.
As we move further into the digital age, it is clear that digital art will play a significant role in the world of art and design. It is an easy way to start implementing all those accessible tools into the way young people express themselves artistically. The rise of technological development has merged into all aspects of our lives, and it is exciting to see what the future holds for digital art.
