Introduction

Question A

Tell us about yourself so we can get to know you and so you can get to know others within the class. In your post, include what you believe to be your current knowledge level of this course topic and what you hope to learn before the course is over.

Question B

There is an age old debate about whether art imitates life or whether life imitates art. Based on what you’ve read this week, where do you weigh in on the debate? Is art simply a reflection of the world as the artist sees it, or can art actually work to shape the world in which we live? Explain your answer in detail.
