Abstract Art is often misunderstood by those who have no knowledge of art history. For those of you who do Abstract Art, I’m sure you’ve heard the cliché “A 5 year old could have done that.” My favorite comeback to that is “No, a 4 year old could have done that,” just to be sarcastic.

I sometimes love to dabble in Abstract Art because to me it’s all about the improv. I liken it to playing Jazz, if you were playing a musical instrument. You kind of do things “on the fly” without any plans mapped out which is what makes it a lot of fun. There ‘s a certain danger to this kind of spontaneity. It can either lead to a masterpiece or disaster.

This is a great video because it explains Abstract Art  to those who don’t know what it is. It also gives a brief history of art and why the different genres of art came to be.
