Is traditional language the same language of the arts?
Conventions- a set of rules established by a group of people
Are there rules to the arts?
"There is a logic of colors and it is with this alone and not with the logic of the brain that the painter should conform."
The painter has to make decisions about the style and composition of the painting. Will it be abstract or representational? How large the canvas will be? What convention will it employ? What color palette? What type of texture?

The composer has to think about what instruments to use, how long the piece will be, what melody, harmony, and rhythm will be used.

The novelist has to decide on the characters and setting, how to be true to the character, the historical context, the style of the novel, and the general literary techniques that will be used.
What decisions go into creating art?
"Aristotle insisted that written work, should have a beginning, middle, and end. Should be unified, contain rhythm and harmony. The plot should become increasing more complex until the moment of climax, at which the whole thing starts to unwind."

a way to learn through self expression, to express that which does not exist in words

We learn more from artwork that follows accepted conventions

Steady progress,
John Steinbeck- we learn from those who have done it best
Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix

Analysis of Evidence
Breaking Conventions- leads to progress
Following Conventions- without learning from the past, we often lack the knowledge or skill to create progression

By following conventions and without attempts to break them, art becomes stagnant. It is dependent on innovators.
Science and innovation- breaking conventional thinking, outside the box

Presentation and Essay
What is the significance of the key points in the historical development of this area of knowledge?
In the Arts do we learn more from work that builds from or breaks from accepted conventions?
To what extent does knowledge in the arts contribute to who we are?
"The arts can also help us appreciate the immensity of things outside ourselves."
"We can understand a work of art such as a novel in the context of our own particular circumstances. We can read ourselves in the novel or poem, or find our own thoughts mirrored in a piece of music."
Identify an artwork that has changed your perspective on the world. What was it about the work that affected you? What methods did the artist use to make the work effective? How did the artist solve internal and external problems? In what way did the artwork map reality?
Develop an outline that responds to the Prescribed Title above?
