#1

Continuing the discussion from ARTH101: Activities & Discussion
It is hard to define Art, as it is to define life for example, nevertheless it defines us somehow.
I do agree with the definition of Art espressed in the Module 1
I would define Art as the group of artistic plastic elements arranged in a way to express thoughts, ideas and feelings. This is comming from what I could call objective perspective as it is taken from other sources through formal study. Although the very adjective of objective is dangerously proclive to arise from a subjective impression.
I also could add that beauty is a very hard concept to define, but my feelings towards art and what I could consider artwork vary from the common inherited face of beauty I learned prior my formal education. Beauty can be a path to express art, but there are also many other attempts also valid to my understanding of art.
