Why art is important
Art is something that inspires people, affects their senses [воздействует на органы чувств], develops the spiritual world of every human being.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines art as "something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas and feelings".
Drawing, painting, sculpture, literature, music, theatre, cinema, dancing - these are just a few examples of art.
On the one hand, art reflects the world, on the other hand it allows us to escape from the monotonous routine of the world. We may like it or dislike it, we may enjoy or criticize it, but one thing cannot be denied - its great emotional and cultural influence over great masses of people.
From this point of view art has a great educational significance. People learn about history of the preceding generations, their lifestyle, life conditions, interests, habits, events, etc.
My favourite art is music. Museums and art galleries has always attracted me, too. I wish I could be good at painting. Unfortunately, I am not good at it.
It conclusion I'd like to stress that without art our life would be dull, colourless and depressing.
