Write up your art story: What do we mean when we say art? What is art to you? How does it fit in to your life? What do you want to learn about in this class?
Art does not have a single definition. Art is literally anything an individual perceives it to be. More importantly, the definition is tied directly to how it makes you feel. Art may be a physical/tangible item and it can also be a thought or mindset.
Personally, art is anything which makes me feel something. For example, I view this earth as art. Both its beauty and ugliness come together to form a piece of art. Various colors, lines, shapes can all be used to describe this earth. Additionally, experiences and specific events can also be used to understand this world as a creative platform.
Within my life, I often try to slow things down and truly appreciate my surroundings. In doing this, I recognize the art that is constantly available to me. With this class, I hope to learn more of the overall history of art. How individuals of past generations understood it and appreciated it. Additionally, I hope to just gain overall knowledge of various forms of art.
