Art is literally in everything around you. It’s in the art on your walls, it’s in the construction of your home, it’s in any toys that you have laying around, and it’s even in the clothing that you wear. Art encapsulates anything that is creative and beautiful, which is something that is in the eye of the beholder. What you see is beautiful may not be beautiful to someone else.
At least in the beginning, clothing is very artistic. The process of creating a piece of clothing, from step one, which is sketching it, to the actual creation of a piece of clothing, is all extremely artistic.

Within an art gallery you’ll find more than just paintings hanging on a wall, you will find a collection of wonderful sculptures and more that has been put together by a curator, such as the collection of art found in Detroit’s Park West Gallery. Use this art as clothing shopping inspiration, from the colors and designs to anything that catches your eye about each piece of work.
