This question "what is art?" is something I have my students re-visit at the beginning of each school year. I find it very interesting and rewarding to see how the perception of art changes as students complete each level at DRHSART.
For this assignment, the class will be broken into small teams. The goal of each team is to get to know each team member and collaborate to write a dynamic and collective paragraph that defines the team's definition of "art". The paragraph should be written with proper grammar, and should have a rhythm of language that is pleasing when read aloud.
We will move into the Gallery at the end of the class, where your essays will be read by one of your team members, and I will take notes on how I interpret your definition. At the end of the class, I will read back a collective definition from what I gathered as each team's essays were read aloud.
