What is art? This seems like such a simple question when first asked but after time requires a lot of thought. Art has been going on since the beginning of time yet it never seems to be the same from generation to generation.

The great thing about art is there is few limitations. We see in the examples above that art can be formed using berries or bricks. We also can look at many other past examples and see that art can be carved, built, assembled, drawn or arranged.

Many artist like to use small mediums while others like to use much larger mediums. When thinking of art we usually think of paintings yet we seem to over look things like sculptures and statues. For example if I asked my classmates to name me there favorite artwork most people would consider a painting but for me I personally enjoy carving and statues better.

I enjoy it because not only is it a great piece of work but it also has a significant meaning and very important people carved into. I feel that as Americans we all should take great pride and be proud of this wonderful carving.
