I think art is something that you have to feel from within. It is the enjoyment of one or all of your senses. It can also be a life style, a way of living. It waters our soul.
Art may come in different forms, simply because every soul is unique and requires different remedies. So art shouldn’t be taught. It is whatever you feel.
The concept of going to lectures to learn the definition of art bugs me. Like opera, some people love it, and some people find it a living hell to sit through. For those that hate it, what seem to them is screaming and scratching everything out of their brain, will they be able to enjoy it after they are lectured on what to look for in that scream?
I think how to enjoy art and enjoy life cannot be taught, just as the way we are.
