Art can sometimes be a hard process to understand in the human mind, it can be anything and everything around you. Art is seen in various forms such as: Dance, Paint, Sculptures, Photography, Landscapes, etc. In order to understand art you would have to keep an open mind and just expand on your minds innovation and feelings. If you are wanting to learn more about art and its history throughout time up until now then I would recommend you to take this course!

I've never analyzed art before only in dance so when I was given the opportunity to analyze a painting I was very excited to write about this dark painting I had always been interested in. Even though it was a short simple assignment I had a lot of joy to critically think about this amazing artwork done by Polish artist: Zdzistaw Beksinski. Below is an image of the photo I chose from one of his art collections.
I took this class because I am already interested in the subject and idea of art, I have always felt like I have always kept an open mind about what I view as art. I don't know if its just because i'm a very bubbly eccentric soul but I enjoy all the things surrounded by me and my mind is my little escape route to seeing all the beautiful things I am surrounded by. What I learnt from this class boosted my innovated mind into something else, a deeper understanding of the art spectrum. I came in this class knowing so little about the different types of art styles and what artists use to accomplish their works, and I left out of this class feeling more confident and excited to talk about the history of art. There are so many artist in the world and they all have their unique style and that is what makes this class so fun, you will get to learn about many artists, styles, art works, exhibits, etc. I can say that the one thing I loved the most about this class is that when you look at art works you're not necessarily critiquing the artist, but you are critically thinking and analyzing the art and what the artists message and intent was to the audience.
