THE VISUAL ARTS CATEGORY IS MUCH NEEDED ON YOUTUBE. As an artist you find yourself yearning for new techniques, new ideas, inspiration, etc. to help you in your own work. We like to be in the know of everything. I like to know what other artists are creating and who's being discovered. However, the way YouTube's browsing is set up, it makes it very difficult to easily find what you are looking for because there isn't a Visual Arts category. If there was one, it would make it so much easier to have a more interactive and pleasurable experience. I have toyed with the idea of posting some of my own videos but because it is so incredibly frustrating as a viewer to find what I'm looking for, I'm am discouraged.  I eventually give up on my searches because I have to spend most of my time browsing through dozens of sites to see if I can find exactly what I'm looking for. Sometimes I get lucky, but most times I don't.

It saddens me to think that the arts continue to die across the world. I believe that social medias and especially YouTube need to consider that we are a very large and vast community and that we deserve not only to be watched but featured.  I hope that they will add a Visual Arts category to help the revival and the future of visual arts.
