    Throughout this course I have gained more of an appreciation for artwork and the artists that create them. I have also gained an appreciation for the people that try to define what art is in general or more specifically what makes good art. We have read great thinkers and their philosophies on this, and the fact that even people of such great intelligence can disagree on the subject proves how challenging it can be.

I define art as anything created by someone that inspires another to appreciation. This is a very broad definition, but it is so on purpose. I think…

Thus, it has opened my eyes not just to the artwork itself, but also to the life and legacy of the artists. In that same token, art is truly the window into the people’s…

    Living with Art is important for many reasons including historical documentation, aesthetics, and promoting a positive self-image, which helps us to see ourselves differently, and those around us differently. Similarly, art provides us with culture, creativity, and personal fulfillment – if we open up our hearts and minds to the possibilities, the arts can offer.

    “The Scream” I really like this painting because somehow it involves mystery and insecurity and to my eyes, the rare views in it reflect a sense of how deep the feelings and thoughts of a person can be. In addition, the fact that the composition does not allow viewers to appreciate the face of the screaming person, is what has drawn me to it. Even though it seems to be that it was a lovely afternoon for everyone, it seems that it was not for the scared looking person. Although two boats are…

    I Believe In Appreciation I believe in appreciation. When I was a child, my mother often told me to appreciate what I had in my life, as she consistently tells me now. Over the course of several years, I started to understand why she told me to so as a result of experiences and tragedies inhibiting the world around me. Those single moments, single experiences, have led me to realize how blessed I was to have what I had in life also taught me the preciousness of life. I also learned that I will…
