Welcome to the easiest time period in the history of the world to be an artist. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc are all art making mediums.

So what are some well known art making mediums?  Paint on canvass certainly.  Film projected onto screens certainly.  Luckily for those of us alive in the present, and who want to make art, a lot of us are now, on a daily bases, logged into new art making mediums.  A Facebook post can be art - take a photo of it, frame it, done! :)  An Instagram photo can be art.  A Tweet can be art.  It all depends on how you think about what art is and what art mediums are.

Almost anything can be art.  As long as an artist is making it or the end product has some art qualities.  Making a sandwich can be art.  The end product - the sandwich - can be art.  Paying bills can be art - if properly documented and presented to the public.  Writing down dates or painting them can be art - see this exhibition by work by On Kawara for proof.

Make art everyday.  Interact with the ordinary, daily world at a deeper, more creative level.  Might be a rewarding experience for you and others.
