Art Creation – Music/Dance/Poetry

Art reflects ideas, themes, and emotions combined and presented in various mediums. The medium of expression differs based on the artist’s preference and the effective delivery of the message. While talent may be a significant input in creating art in its various forms, reflection, creativity, and inspiration are critical inputs in the creation process. Reflection involves critical analysis of a topic or issue of an identified theme. Reflection offers a perspective of the issue and develops its scope and important aspects (Ishiguro & Okada, 2018 p.205). The reflective aspect provides a basis for creativity to deliver the intended message. The artist develops the best medium and means for expressing their views on the selected topic. The creative aspect also involves expression, which determines the effectiveness of delivery. The expression also alludes to the artist’s talent and is its most effective measurement tool. For the success of this artistic process, the artist requires inspiration which is the basis for creating phase (Ishiguro & Okada, 2018 p.207). Inspiration draws the artist towards a specific topic or range of ideas. The inspiration may be informed of other artistic works or even personal experiences. In this regard, the creation of poetry requires reflection, creativity, and, most notably, inspiration.

Still, I Rise by Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I’ll rise.….please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $10
