In a workshop at Room 13 Community Studio in Caol we explored the age old question ‘What is Art?’
Our panel of experts* came to the following conclusions:
Art is interesting to look at.
Art moves the viewer.
Art shows skill.
Art reflects the artists intention.
Art shows consideration and thought – it makes us ask why the artist did it?
Art is different from daily life.
Art has been made to be art – it is something.
Art reflects an experience of the world or the artists unique view of it.
Art leaves the viewer to make decisions.
