World Art Day comes on April 15 of every year. World Art Day is celebrated to promote awareness about creative activity worldwide. Art is a broad range of human activities in creating the visual, auditory or performing the artifacts, expressing their creative or technical skill, which intended to be appreciated for their beauty and emotional power. Art comes in various forms, but the main categories (first founded in ancient Greece) were Painting, Architecture, Music, Sculpting, Dance, and Literature. In 1911 Cinema, was added as a seventh art by Ricciotto Canudo.
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
History of World Art Day
The IAA (International Association of Art) designed the day April 15 as World Art Day. The main idea is to create a day for all the lovers of art and artists in the world to celebrate, not only the members of the International Association of Art (IAA). The aim is to create a day to emphasise the importance of art in the lives of everyone, of all ages and races. Every art centre, gallery, University, Museum, and artist are free to organize their activities. April 15 was chosen in honour of Leonardo Da Vinci’s birthday, who is considered a symbol of multiculturalism, free expression, world peace, tolerance, and visionary in the world of arts. Events on this day can vary from special museum hours to conferences and special exhibitions. Hence World Art Day will permit to all the art lovers and artists of the world, to feel the preciousness and the power of art simultaneously and let all of us breathe it is vital for all the nations of the world.
