Do you share your love of art with young people?

In school, most of your child’s education is probably focused on math, science, and language arts. It is important to remember, however, that there is so much more just waiting to be discovered. Introducing your kids to art will open up a whole new world for them and it may awaken an inner creativity. How to Introduce Your Kids to the World of Art

Yes, but most of the youth are concerned with "How to" than "Why" when it comes to art. Many have no foundation, it is merely a competition as to who can, as it is said on the internet, "Git gud" [sic]. They do not realize that art is a representation of their skill and their perception. And what is becoming apparent is that modern perception is stifled and limited.

So when I have students or discuss art with younger artists, I like to inquire about their methodologies, their beliefs, their perceptions regarding life and their influences, what drives them to create, what is their end goal and so on.

Unfortunately, this sort of approach, from my experience, seems to be something of antiquity incomparable with the materialist endeavors of the modern society. Art seems to have lost it's intrinsic and aesthetic values in today's youth, so I am always pleased when I see a young artist with a burning passion for the work they made, albeit, it is a rare occurrence.

Narrated 'Ubaada bin As-Saamit رضى الله عنه: I heard Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, "The first thing created by Allah was the pen. He said to it, 'Write!' It said, 'O Lord! What should I write?' Allah Said, 'Write down the destiny of every thing until the Final Hour (as per my Will).'" [Ahmad]
