Depends. I've always been exposed to art and encouraged  by family and friends. Not sure if that qualifies or not.  This is who I've always been.

If I never became an artist I think I would be a very different person right now. 

I always think to myself that I'm so happy I took up drawing as a hobby, it's so fulfilling and it's something I can do whenever I want, and as long as I keep drawing I will keep improving!

Art is beyond this question. But the sense of who I am is not a believe.  So...............................................................................................................

I have used art to see the beauty in the smallest things.  Like a man holding a coat over someone who needs it.  That is true beauty.  Not orchids and flowers, or butterflies and ladybugs.  The simplest things are the prettiest.

It can. Art can be very powerful that way. At the same time, though, it cannot be said for every person. It really depends on the way a particular piece of work affects an certain individual.

art does change the sense of who you are because it can be a method of communication - either by the mind of the observer or in the act of creation. whenever communication between people takes place, especially when it gives you an unfamiliar angle, will allow yourself to look at you with a new perspective - changing your sense of who you are. we all have little parts of everything we've been emotionally touched or traumatised by in us - and art has the power to bring those bits of us we do not usually see to the surface, to our conscious self perception.

Sometimes it can change you,sometimes it can't . Art is where you draw your imagination and with all the creativity, it takes you to a whole new colorful world full of what you can imagine.... :FeelingFree: fair fight :PizzaParty:

Maybe maybe not. art is a tool to express your imagination and its already a part of you?
