I don't know if there's open air Art markets in my country, May be.
I love dance Tango but I don't think I have any artistic talents in other arts like painting, sculpture, woodworking....
When Art makes you have a good feeling, strong emotions, bad or good, this makes it a good art. ( Hi Peter or Kirk, could you tell me if my last sentence is correct or is there a better way to say it, please, thank you)


Your last sentence is not quite grammatically correct but is clear in terms of what you are trying to say. I would change it as follows:

When art gives you a good feeling, which is to say strong emotions whether bad or good, then I would say it is good art.


Best wishes,

Hi!There is famous open-air art market Andriyivskiy uzvyz in Kiev, Ukraine. There lots of artists show and sell their art. I'm not really can art. I think for good art need to have wonderful imagination.

Hello,everyone!!! I like to painting by number. It makes me relax,but i can't painting long i want to learn drawing...

Yes, there are open-air markets in my country. I don't know I have any artistic talents or not. I just draw and paint because it makes me happy and free and full of live. I think a couple of hand which make their works happily and pleasurably create good art.

Yes, there are.
I used to draw some pictures by Van Gogh but I have lost my talent.
It must have got the colours that makes you happy and refreshed.
