In the beginning of the year I explained that art was a freedom of expression thought creativity and imagination. Now, I said that art cannot be defined in a single sentence. Art is self expression. Art is what comes from the heart and flows through your brain into the paper. I said that art is a feeling that is expressed in any way that one pleases.
2) List some reasons that an artist would need to use observation when making artwork.
In the beginning of the year I said observation was used to get correct detail, to see color, and to see shapes. Now that I've been through art 3 I've learned that observation is necessary to create a piece with complete accuracy. Observation is drawing all of the details to get exactly what you want just using your basic senses. I pretty much knew what observation was in the beginning, but now I know more about observation after taking this class.
3) Is copying always plagiarism or is there a gray area? Explain your thoughts.
In the beginning of the year I thought that copying wasn't always plagiarism. I said there is gray area where you could just be using someone's idea, but creating something different with it. My answer at the beginning of the year is very similar to my answer at the end because I answered the exact same thing. Art 3 taught me that copying isn't always plagiarism, and I know that now for sure.
4) What are some reasons why artists make art?
I said at the beginning of the year that art was used to express yourself and make a statement. Now I said that there isn't one single reason that an artist makes art. An artist makes art because they want to or maybe even because they're forced to. The point is, there is no answer to this question. Art is everywhere, and anyone and everyone can make art.
