I chose to take an art class as the arts course in high school where we were given the choice to take drama, art or music. The reason why I chose art is that I am passionate about art, and how well artworks can express emotions and different concepts to inform others. It is also interesting how many techniques are applied in one artwork to communicate a message, and how the different techniques used can influence the viewers to have a different interpretation.
This year, in art class, we have been learning about how art can be used to raise people’s status. We explored the artworks made in the Dutch Golden Artworks and researched how Dutch Golden Artists, such as Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt did to raise the status of someone through arts.
