IELTS Speaking Sample Questions # Art
Art is the one subject that most people neglect, other than those that really love. We are living in times where still an artist is often considered as not a serious job. In midst of the confusion, there are some people who believe that art is one of the most important subject because it helps you build your creativity. This time let us have a look at some of the questions related to arts that can be asked in the IELTS speaking section.
Do you like arts?
Not really. I remember as a child I used to be one of the children who couldn’t even draw a line straight. The kind of children art teachers felt pitty about. But, yes, I do love playing with colours. So, creating something with colours and the other materials like glasses or the garbage materials I am pretty good at them. So, I do like designing but creating portraits or scenery, I really am not good at them.
Do you think art classes are necessary?
Definitely yes. Art is the one subject, I believe, that allow you to be creative. So, here nothing is right or wrong, it is about what you could think of. It allows children to realise the happiness of creating something and it is powerful.
How do you think art classes affect children’s development?
Art is very essential for the development of a child. It helps children in learning a language. It is through the colours and shapes, action that they learn activities. Also, it helps children in making decisions. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art creatures carries on to life. So, a child who cannot even decide the color to chose surely has some decision issues in life. And there is so much more, a child learns culture and visual learning.
What kind of paintings do people like?
This is a choice, I believe varies among people. So, there are some people who like paintings of a scenic beauty and then others who like self potraits only. I have even met people who like only sketches, so no colors for them. Too an extent, the choices we make do define us and people’s taste do differ.
What benefits can you get from painting as a hobby?
Painting allows us to be creative, to make choices and helps in healing. So, it is not just about painting the perfect potrait but about letting your thoughts on the paper. When people do it , it really affects their psychology making them happier and more content with life.
How often do you visit museums and art galleries?
I do like visiting museums and art galleries but not very often. So, there is no list that I have for all the museums that I need to visit. But surely, yes, I ever I stumble upon them I do go and visit the place.
Do you think going to museums and art galleries is beneficial for children?
I think definitely yes. Museums enlighten children about their history and knowing the history is important to have a better understanding of the present. Art galleries on other hand help a child to improve their visual analytics power. It is when the child tries to understand what the painting is about, they develop the analytical skills.
What kind of things do you like to draw?
I love creative drawing. So, the kind of drawing where we use different objects and create things is something I am really good at. But, the art of using brushes properly is something I am yet to learn.
Is it easy to learn how to draw?
Yes, it is easy to learn how to draw the basics. But, in my opinion, just like everything it requires lot of patience and love to master the skill of drawing.
