Art is a universal language. Thousands of years ago, mankind told stories through pictures drawn on cave walls. Through the ages, artists have relayed history through drawings, paintings, architecture and sculptures. Joy, sorrow, anger, peace - the emotions and experiences of artists are shared in a sketched line or a splash of color.

Understanding traditional art media is essential to graphic artists. While the process of creating art on a computer differs from drawing, painting or sculpting, mechanics and techniques remain the same. Studying art prepares students to create their own unique art via their chosen medium. When learning to draw, paint or sculpt, students at Seminole State learn perspective, 3-D principles, drawing concepts and visual composition. These skills are the foundation for graphic design. Through these concepts, students learn to visually create, giving them a competitive edge in the design market.
Art is truly universal, which is one of its greatest strengths; it truly can benefit everyone and every industry. Art is the most effective way to communicate across language and cultural barriers. This makes it ideal for business and professional applications.
Art gives us the ability to express ourselves. Through that expression, we communicate by drawing on our own unique emotions, thoughts and experiences. When you see and study another's art, you're seeing the world through their eyes. When you create, you're letting the world see through yours.
Even if your work is never displayed in an art gallery, personal expression holds many benefits. Creating an artistic piece is relaxing for many artists and helps them cope with the pressures of everyday life or extreme situations. To help control high blood pressure or other stress-related illnesses, doctors often suggest self-expression through art. Creating art is also rewarding because it can boost your self-esteem.
