At the beginning of the semester, I would like you to record your current thoughts about art. What do you think of when you hear that word? What is your experience with visual art? Use the following sentence as a prompt:
“When I think about art, I think…” Also, please describe why?
This essay should be an honest reflection of your current thinking, positive, negative, or indifferent. Maybe you like art and have several favorite artists. Maybe you yourself like to make art, and that pleasure is what you associate with the word ‘art.’ You can write about that. Maybe you think art is boring, stuffy, bougie, etc. You can write about that too. Again, this should be an honest reflection of your current thinking!
