Abstract

Since ancient times, art has served as a means of communication, rehabilitation, and transformation, and it has been used to gain physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. Drawing, painting, sculpture, and other artistic forms of communication are important and effective, and over the centuries, cultures have been defined and understood through the art they produced.
