What Is ART? I asked this of my students this year and it has been my theme off and on for the entire year. They gave me their definitions which mostly revolved around naming methods of making art. "Art is drawing." "Art is Painting." "Art is drawing and painting." I did have a few students who put forward that "Art is expressive". Or something worded along those lines. It seems that some of them innately understand what "IT" is but can't put it into words. I gave them a technical definition akin to what I'm borrowing from the internet, "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others", but I added my own thoughts that societal interpretation is what provided art objects their value as "ART". In the end, the critics decide. So, among the learned and practitioners of aesthetics, I ask, "What is ART?"
