Is THAT Art?

This semester we are going to explore not only the who (artists) and how (media and technique) of art, but also the what and why of art. Please take out a sheet of paper (or grab one from the back counter) and answer the following questions the best you can: (There is no “correct” or “incorrect” answer, tell me what you think)

1. What is art?

2. What is not art?

3. What is the purpose of art?

4. Who decides what art is?
