My friend and I discussed art this afternoon. She argued that I am a well-rounded artist. Not only do I write, but also do other art-work like fabric-painting, fashion design, knitting , cooking, gardening, etc. She argued further, “Any writer is an artist of another thing in life.” I think that she was right to a large extent. Art develops creativity. It is possible for a writer to do other activities perfectly well, and for another artists to write well. Art increases the ability to engage critically and clearly with life in its various forms. It is not surprising that artists have several skills.
