I love looking at other people's art and crafts as much as I enjoy creating art and crafts. Mostly what I gain from others' art and crafts is inspiration and open mindedness. There are a lot of things out there that I do not consider art but it opens my mind and gives me insight into what other people think art is. However, I can gain inspiration from things I do not believe are necessarily art.
Skills and Techniques
We all learn as children to be creative and imaginative, but if we do not work to further develop our creativity throughout grade school and adulthood, we will lose that ability almost completely. Therefore, I have decided I will always continue using my creative and imaginative abilities because I never want to be living a life where imagination is impossible.
