to the wonderful world of post production... Learn to see what the final image will look like, what you want it to look like, and then take it. Art filters can be a great help to visualize at least until you can "see" it in your head even before you take the camera to your eye.

I am not a fan of art filters myself. I can do better myself, and can imagine the final image, but I can see why it would be a great help to learning this skill instead of "the hard way"...

Don't feel guilty about using these, use them to your hearts content, then as you learn to see and learn to do, you will find that fiddling with the art-filter menu before taking each shot is a waste of time and you start to just take RAW and do the effects in PP knowing what you want and how to get there.
