Visual Art

What is visual art? Visual art is a term for art forms including (but not limited to) ceramics, drawings, paintings, sculptures, printmaking, design and crafts. It is any type of art that can be seen and due to its decorative and aesthetic nature is a powerful way to make broader points about social issues.

How can I do it? Visual art is one of the cheapest and most accessible creative methods as it can be produced from almost anything. However there are many organisations that can liaise with community groups to share their artistic expertise, for example this is a directory of the Ugandan cultural and creative community with contact details for many creatives in the area.
