In class, we discussed the meaning behind art and culture. Art is a way of expressing yourself by any means, whether it is by drawing, sculpting, or dancing. By no rules or boundaries, each artist has their own way of expressing what is on their mind. Culture is more of a way a group of people could distinguish themselves from others. It is also based on tradition and each group, particularly families, are proud to show what they believe in to others. In the picture, I used my younger sister as an example of someone following their culture based on their ethnicity and showing their expressing through art, which in this example is dancing. The tradition to dress colorfully and dance along regional Mexican music to tie art and culture together.

By the way, this is my first post so I look forward to continuing my blog!
