APPRECIATION:
CREATIVITY,
2
IMAGINATION, AND
EXPRESSION
By the end of this lesson, you
should be able to:
1. Differentiate art from nature,
2. Characterize artistic expression based
on personal experiences with art,
3. Discuss the nature of art’s
preliminary
expression, and
4. Categorize works of art by citing
personal experiences.
OIt takes an artist to make art. One may
perceive beauty on a daily basis.
OHowever, not every beautiful thing that
can be seen or experienced may truly
be called a work of art.
OArt is a product of man’s
creativity, imagination, and
expression.
ONot everyone can be considered an
artist, but all are spectators of art.
OWe are able to distinguish what is fine
and beautiful from what is not and what
is good quality and from poor.
OThis gives us a role in the field
of art appreciation.
Answer
briefly.
OIn one of your encounters with art
through museum visits, musicals, and
plays among others, have you ever felt
disconnected from an artwork? Was
there a point in time when you did not
understand what message the art was
trying to convey? Explain why you think
you did or did not understand the art.
ART APPRECIATION AS A
WAY OF LIFE
O “The role of art as a creative work is to
depict the world in a completely different
light and
perspective” – Jean-Paul Sartre
OEach artwork beholds beauty in its
own kind, the kind that the artist sees
and wants the viewers to perceive.
OMore often than not, people are
blind to this beauty and only those
who have developed a fine sense of
appreciation can experience and see
the art the way the artist did.
O Hence, refining one’s ability to appreciate
arts allows him to deeply understand the
purpose of an artwork and recognize the
beauty it possesses. (Collins & Riley, 1931).
OIn cultivating an appreciation of art, one
should also exercise and develop his
taste for things that are fine and
beautiful.
OThis allows individuals to make
intelligent choices and decisions in
acquiring necessities and luxuries,
knowing what gives better value for time
or money while taking into
consideration the aesthetic and
practical value.
OLearning to appreciate art
no matter what vocation
or profession you have,
will lead to a fuller and
more meaningful life.
THE ROLE OF CREATIVITY
IN ART MAKING
OCreativity requires thinking outside the
box.
OIn art, creativity is what sets apart one
artwork from another.
An artist embraces originality, puts his
own flavor into his work, and calls it his
own creative piece.
When can we say that
something is creative?
O When we have not seen anything like it
O When it is out of the ordinary
O When it is not just a copy or imitation of
someone’s work

…THERE IS ORIGINALITY!
O Nowadays, being creative can be quite challenging.
ART AS A PRODUCT OF
IMAGINATION, IMAGINATION AS A
PRODUCT OF ART
O “Imagination is more important than
knowledge. For knowledge is
limited to all we now know and
understand, while imagination
embraces the entire world, and all
there ever will be to know and
understand.” – Albert Einstein
OImagination is not constrained by the
walls of the norm, but goes beyond that.
OThrough imagination, one is able to
craft something bold, something new,
and something better in the hopes of
creating something that will
stimulate change.
OIn artist’s mind sits a vast gallery of
artworks
OAn artwork does not need to be a real
thing, but can be something that is
imaginary (Collingwood, 1938).
OHowever, something imaginary does not
necessarily mean it cannot be called
art. Artists use their imagination that
gives birth to reality through creation.
OIn the same way that
imagination produces art, art
also inspires imagination.

ART AS
EXPRESSION
O“What an artist does to an emotion is
not to induce it, but express it. Through
expression, he is able to explore his
own emotions and at the same time,
create something beautiful out of them.”
– Robin George Collingwood
OExpressing emotions is different
from describing emotions.
OThis makes people’s art not a
reflection of what is outside or
external to them, but a reflection of
their inner selves.
•O Some forms of art expression
include visual arts, lm, performance
art, poetry performance, architecture,
dance, literary arts, theater arts, and
applied arts.
VISUAL ARTS
O Creations that fall under this category are
those that appeals to the sense of
