The question in class was, what is art to you? Both Maritess and I agreed that art could be anything you want it to be. It does not have to be pretty or nice it just needs to make you think. It could be a beautiful painting or it could be a heap of trash. Art is a representation of what is going on today in the world. A painting could be representative of some entity in society that is wonderful. The heap of trash could be all of the pollution that humans have created and how we are just leaving it there and doing very little to solve this problem. I feel that the thought process behind an art piece is almost more important than the art piece itself. Art tells a story and the story could be different to every person that is what makes it great.
