We sometimes begin our class with a question. Today’s question was “Why do people make art”. I was really impressed with the depth and insight that came through the answers. I was expecting to hear something about creating beauty or decoration. Some of the answers were, “because the artist is inspired”, “because the artist wants to inspire others” , and “because it feels good to make art”. I agree with all of these concepts and they touch on the complexity of the creative process for both the artist and the viewer.
