Arts

This Arts section is dedicated to sharing all we know about the many creative industries.

Acting

Whether on a stage, screen or right up-close and personal, performances have the power to move us to laughter, tear and even rage. Acting reaches deep into our emotions and touches the core of our humanity.

A good actor can inspire us to learn more about ourselves, lift us from the deepest despair and even bring us closer to those we love. This section is where you will find all of our info on the world of acting and drama.

 

Drawing

They say that a picture can paint a thousand words and, whether you are using paint, pencils, fabric or spatters of ink, they are definitely right!

Pictures show us a frame of reality. It does not have to be our reality, but it is always the reality of one world or another.

There are so many styles of art and drawing and you can do any of them if you try.

Here are all of our resources on the artistic world!

 

Filmmaking

Films are a challenge to make and sometimes even a challenge to watch. From beautiful romances to heart wrenching dramas, films transport us to a land of fantasy and share with us the challenge and journey of the characters within it.

Here we will share with you all we know about the art that is making a film.
