Art: An object that is the result of hard work, creativity and a critical thinking process of questioning, exploration, trial & error, revision and discovery.
Artists help us see the world in new ways.
Artists make a
visual record of the people, places and events of their place and time.
Artists make functional objects and structures more pleasurable and elevate them or imbue them with meaning.
Realism - representational art
