Art is pretty subjective, isn't it? I think anything you put your mind to, and are able to step back and say "that is awesome", constitutes as art. Because, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. As long as your "art" does not hurt someone else, is not racist, and does not show cruelty, your art can be a healer too.
Today, during my tutoring session, I wanted to incorporate art. So I had my student use my Cannon simple digital Powershot S300 camera to take a few lovely pictures. She then took the pictures, slightly modified them, and then did her required 5 minute writing based on the process we used to take the pictures. We are working on transitional words and phrasing and she did a lovely job. Below are the pictures she took. Next week she will use one of the pictures to paint on a lovely canvas. Can you guess which one she chose to write about for today?
