In old time, Fine art was considered valued in the world, and we still can see lot of monuments and artifacts from different cultures which amaze people of our generation to think how someone had built this. For example, Pyramids from Egypt, Taj Mahal from India, Monalisa Painting etc. However, considering today’s need, people perspective has been changed and mostly are leaning towards modern technology, science, and business. There are several reasons of gradual decline in fine art.
First, Art has become a difficult carrier choice for most of the students, as on average it does not pay desired income, one has to face lot of struggles to make a good earning. In recent time, advancement in technologies such as computer, space, etc. have inspired youth to pursue their carrier in these fields as they get better paycheck and a great lifestyle.
Secondly, to become a great artist for a decent income, it requires great expertise. This needs a lot of focus, time from the students. They also have to face fierce competition in order to get good projects or jobs. I think this is much easier for students to do a degree in technology, science and start their carrier in this field as there are huge demands now a days for engineers and scientists. So, more and more students are making their choices in these fields.
In my view, despite there is regular drop in art’s popularity, we should promote art cultures, one way is to maintain some museums about our art history that should focus how the world class painting or structure was made despite no advancement in technology. Government should also need to give more focus in school’s curriculums for art subjects such as painting and sculpture. Parents also need to see the child’s ability, if he/she is creative and fascinated about painting then they should motivate him/her rather than discouraging.
