There is usually an agreement that something is a work of art, but what causes this agreement? Is there something objective in the arrangement of the artwork that causes some kind of aesthetic experience in each of us, or is it entirely a subjective interpretation? The statement “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” makes it clear that beauty is such a relative term. What holds beauty to one, may not hold beauty to another. So, if a concept such as beauty, can be that subjective, can the same be said for a medium of largely interpretative products, such as art? There must be some quality that distinguishes a work of art from that of an “ordinary” object. Some may say that art is a relative concept and that if someone designates something as art, it is art. I believe there must be more to it. Artwork requires creativity, skill, and the ability to entertain. Art is the ultimate form of the expression of an artist’s creativity. Creativity is innate to all of us, and it is unique to each of us. Art also requires a good bit of skill. Skills are specific abilities that are fostered with diligent practice and/or natural talent. While creativity may enable the artist to imagine the piece, skill allows the artist to bring it to life. What ultimately makes a piece of artwork is its ability to entertain(The X Factor). The goal of art should be to express yourself and allow others to enjoy your expression. Art puts skills and creativity to work for the purpose of
plays as well as watching television. Without these forms of art, it would be difficult for one to stay entertained. I value art being expressed through body artistry. I believe tattooing in itself is art. It is a form of self-expression a person. The tattoo artist is showing ones skill to master drawing (tattooing) and the individual receiving the tattoo is displaying the artwork. Without being judgmental I’m not quite sure you can exactly say what art is not. I am a very open-minded and free
What is Art
What is art? I have considered this question so many times, but I could not come up with an appropriate answer to it. In a long time, I had believed that art is something that the majority do not have a chance to be connected with. Art is just for “artists”— those who could turn a piece of rock to David, or who could make an ordinary woman the perpetual Mona Lisa with a mysterious smile. I had also assumed that art is related to those things people can barely use: a vase from one
What is art?
One of the big questions in the world, one that will keep you wondering and thinking the question some may ask is what is Art? There’s No true answer to what art is, it’s more of an opinion and is different in everyone’s perspective. Art is a way of skill, anything that comes through somebody’s mind. Art makes this world what it is to this day, and because of it the world also thinks much differently. It’s not just a way to communicate, although it’s that too. Art helps the
What is Modern Art?
The English language pretty much allows for "modern" and "contemporary" to be swapped at will. Modern Art: Art from the Impressionists (say, around 1880) up until the 1960's or 70's. Contemporary Art: Art from the 1960's or 70's up until this very minute.
Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is
WHAT IS ART?
What is Art? This phenomena art can be defined in many ways, some define it as a portrait, music, sketches, architecture, collages,photography and the list could go on. However what is the true meaning of art? We can sit, we can ponder, we can conduct researches even turn to a dictionary for the "politically correct definition" but can a book or any number of research really tell us what art is? I say no according to an art critic Jerry Saltz "Art is a way of thinking a way
his image. Therefore, everyone’s an artist even though they don’t realize it.
In my opinion, another criterion for something to be art is the emotion that it conveys. If art neither communicates an emotion nor have a meaning, then it’s useless. All the drawings I have in my room are based on a particular experience. Those drawings show what motivated the artist, and what feelings he had deep inside him while drawing. Whenever someone understands a drawing, or painting, I believe the goal of
What is art?
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time,” Thomas Merton said. I read this quote the last year and I found it so true. The most easy way to prove or believe this quote is to look all that you have inside and express it. One way of express whatever you are it is through art.
There are several types of art and elements. Each person understands the art from a different point of view. My point of view about what is art, is dance. It is the power to

money! In the center of the room on the first floor was a huge moose trap holding a White Man’s Bible. This sculpture made me think, white men are being trapped by Hitler. There was a lot of art that showed Hitler, this I believe is the time period the artist focused on. There was an enormous piece of art that caught my eye as I walked in. The background was colorful and full of words that related to the large symbol of the board, peace. To me peace is the freedom of all hate! On the other side
