This class week I had a conversation with a smart and interesting guy, RJ (Rei Cayabyab )! This is his second year at CSULB and sounds like he is enjoying himself here. This week we discussed if art was important in todays world- which we decided it completely was. Art is a wonderful outlet for people to express themselves. That led into a conversation of other forms of self- expression as well, such at personal clothing style. RJ mentioned how Professor Zucman’s clothing is such a great example of self expression and how most people are afraid to even step outside the box of the norm, or what is expected. Art can be expressed in many ways. We talked about how you don’t have to be artistic to create art as a way to express yourself. If a colored line down the middle of a canvas is considered art, so can a stick figure! Just imagine the world without art and creators… it would be pretty boring and uninspiring.
