Art is something that fashions beauty and pleasure that is present in the human soul, and is enjoyed with eyes or ears. Cultural arts are tools that reflect and represent our customs and values as a society. They are multidisciplinary, cross-genre, and are less about the finished product and more about the process. The arts help us explore our culture and ourselves.
Traditional Havyaka art consists of variety of art forms, including handicrafts, visual art, literary art, and performing art - yakshagana and traditional songs. Each form of art is unique in its own way and greatly admirable. While some have changed over time, others have remained unchanged by modernization. In the days of yore, many of the art forms - handicrafts and visual art - were of natural material, and they exude an air of antiquity and vintage nostalgia for a bygone era.
