Quotes about Art and Creativity

Art encompasses a lot of different trades, techniques, and tools. The entire history of the human race has involved art in some way or another. From cave drawings, hieroglyphics, paintings, sculptures and writing of long gone geniuses worth millions of dollars to modern day artists, writers, crafters, and other creative people, art, for some people, is more than just a way to enjoy life. For some people, art IS life. These people have a lot to say about imagination, creativity, and, of course, art as demonstrated by the following 10 quotes:
