Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say. But when one seeks to see the beauty in all things their world is broadened. They open the door to a new world that always existed, but remained hidden to those who limit themselves to seeing beauty only what they are told is beautiful.

Those who see beauty are more able to recreate it in their lives. And while this creation is not confined to those who go to school, you may just find your creative mind tapped by dedicating a little time and energy into getting an online art and design degree.

Let me share 3 ways that your ability to see beauty can increase by taking some internet classes. First, by being exposed to what others consider beautiful. Second, by studying ideas of beauty, perspective and design. Third, by dedicating yourself to seeing beauty in the world around you.

My first suggestion may at first seem unimportant. I mean, you like what you like and won’t it always be like that? Well, no. Take for example your music tastes from when you were a kid and compare it with your likes now. Are they the same? How about the kinds of clothes you wear, are THEY the same? Probably not. But just because your tastes change doesn’t mean that your ideas of beauty will, yeah? Well, just trust me on this one. Take an open mind to the classroom and I think you’ll find that being exposed to a few of the greats you cannot help but see your ideas about beauty blossom and grow.

To help you understand my second idea, think back to a time when you studied something intently. Personally, I have the example of learning the theory behind music as well as learning a musical instrument. During the course of that study I came to appreciate all the work that goes into creating such beautiful symphonies, magnificent melodies and other music. Others had studied for years and through practice refined their talents; they made it look so easy. But I came to realize that their works represented a dedication, a devotion and much of their time. This became beautiful to me. As you study what goes into creating great art and architecture you will come to appreciate more everything around you.

Lastly, there is an old Native American saying that goes something like this, “You cannot understand me until you walk a mile in my moccasins.” In the doing we come to see even more clearly the brilliance involved with creating great art. When you paint, draw or sculpt like after the manner of the great masters, you can understand somewhat of what they went through to create what they felt was beautiful. And pouring so much into spotting and creating your own beauty you will learn to see beauty where others cannot.

While each person’s experience in education and in classes is different, I strongly feel like you could benefit from learning how to bring beauty to life through art & design. If you have ever had an inclination to learn more about art or design, why not shoot for an online art or design degree?
