Let’s talk about the difference between taste and aesthetics…….
I enjoy many types of art. Painting, drawing, photography, writing, music, crafts, dance etc., many forms of ‘making’. There are also a lot of types of art that I don’t like. This is called taste.
I have studied the reasons why some works are considered “good art,” (even if I don’t agree.) and understand why they are considered good. That is called aesthetics.
What is important in this class is understanding why a work of art is considered “good,” not whether or not you like it. I do hope you find some new things to like though!
