2. What is considered art?
I think that art is creativity. I think that it doesn’t have to be drawing or painting to be considered art, I think that anything that is a way of you expressing creativity through design can be considered art. It can be drawing, painting, digital art, dancing, etc.
3. How does context affect works of art?
Context affects works of art because art usually applies to what is going on in the world at the time of the artwork, so whatever is happening at the time of the artwork, is what could be portrayed in the work, which is context.
4. Why would context matter when interpreting Art?
Context matters when interpreting art because of the fact that art applies to what is going on in the world at the time. It is helpful to know what was happening in history when the art was made, because it can give you clues to what the art means, and what the artist was trying to explain through artwork.
Project Description- The point of this project was to get us familiar with Photoshop, and to introduce us to digital art, as well as to teach us about some of the elements of art, and paying attention to our surroundings. To start, we watched a ted talk about observing the world around us. Then we went and took pictures from the environment of each letter of our name. Then we put them into Photoshop, and created an art piece out of the letters of our name. This project helped me to learn the basics of Photoshop, and I think it was very beneficial. If I were to do this project again, I would spend more time on taking better pictures so that I could use my own pictures in the final project.
