Wk 12 – This Week!
- Art Talk Discussion – at the bottom of this post
- Activity – None this week
- Artist Conversation – @SOA Galleries
- Classmate Conversation – @SOA Galleries
Classmate Conversation This Week
This week a little variation. Instead of finding 1 person to have a conversation with, find 2. Try to make your group of 3 all peeps that haven’t met each other yet. If that fails make sure you at least don’t know 1 of the others yet.
Draw your ID Cards together in one of the galleries. Let some of the art you see be your inspiration for a triptych (a picture composed of 3 panels that connect). When you’ve had your conversation and drawn your triptych, find me in the SOA Art Gallery Courtyard, give me your triptych, and LMK what you all said about the Classmate Question OTW.
Classmate Question OTW
Does it have to “look like art” to be art? If “yes”, why do only things in that space count as art? If “no”, then is anything art? Is everything art? What isn’t art? If it doesn’t have to look like art, then how do you know if it is art? Is art something about the act of the artist “making”? Or is art something about the audience “looking”? Can anything become art if you choose to view and think about it that way?
