As if you were explaining the term to a person who has never heard of it before, explain the meaning of art and its purpose according to your own personal philosophy. Consider what qualifies as art and what may not. This is an opportunity to voice your open and honest perspective. I expect you to challenge your former assumptions that you may no longer agree with. Also, you are to uphold and fortify any maintained presumptions with your newly educated opinion and knowledge base. Justify any previous opinions you still agree with, using your newly acquired art education.
