Peter Catalanotto, author and illustrator, will be visiting our school on October 17th. My favorite book by Peter is Emily’s Art. Emily loves to draw and paint. She paints pictures of her family and daily activities. One day, her teacher announces an art contest. Every day the students are given time to paint. Emily begins to become very nervous about the upcoming contest. Watch the video below to see what happens.
Please respond with a well-developed comment. Consider these questions:
- What are some things that you consider to be art?
- What makes something a piece of artwork?
- What is art?
- Who decides whether or not something is good artwork?
