FINAL THOUGHTS: Things artists have said about art:

WHAT IS ART? I LIKE THIS DEFINITION:
Art is not an imitation of life but a revelation of life!

NOT ALL ART IS PRETTY,
Some art shocks us into understanding

NOT ALL ART IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND --
Some expression requires that we educate ourselves into new ways of thinking and communicating
