CMS students study the purpose of art

Campbellsville Middle School students are studying why people make artwork.

 

In Jo Ann Harris’s classes, students have been learning the basics of art, such as why art should be taught in schools and the purposes of art.

 

Students said people make artwork to show their feelings, to entertain and when designing books, clothing and cars.

 

Harris said there are four reasons art is made, including to express emotion, as a narrative, as functional and as ceremonial.

 

To help them visualize the concepts, students read a passage from “The Selfish Giant” by Oscar Wilde.

 

As an activity, Harris asked her students to create artwork that expresses the narrative of the story.
