Today’s question

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.
