The Art Files
By Jaylin B
I want to talk about art. We see art all around us, cartoons, probably when you are coming to work or school, or even in your bathroom. There are many artists around us and they make the art that we all see. But how does art affect the people that see it? I asked some friends of mine about this
I interviewed Owen, a freshman at Binghamton High School. I asked, “Do you like art?” He said yes. Then I asked,” Does art affects your daily life and, if so, can you give an example?” Owen said, “No, because art does not brighten my day.” I asked what art mean to him, and he said with sarcasm, “It is a chance for you to draw 4 blue lines on paper and sell it.”
I interviewed a freshmen, Stephanie. I asked Stephanie if she likes art, and she said that she enjoys art. Art does affect her daily life because without art she would be bored. Then I asked what does art means to her? Stephanie said, “Art is a way to express herself.”
Last, I interviewed Kaitlin, a senior in Binghamton High School, who loves art! She said art does effect her daily life because not only does she attend art in school, but she also does music, orchestra, NYSSMA, steel drum band, and others.
Then I asked, “What does art mean to you?” “Without art, I wouldn’t know what to do,” said Kaitlin.
These are the peers I chose to interview. As you can see, people have different points of views on art.
