Art doesn't have to be created by the "A grade" art supplies that art catalogs and art store sell. Art doesn't even need to be made using supplies found from hardware stores either. Art could be made by using anything and everything. Trash bags, plastic wraps, even rocks can all be used to create art. All you need to make art is an idea and a way to make that idea a reality
I feel that the way art has changed in the many years it's been changing has caused a way to be deeper with meanings. The ways people have found to explain abstract ideals throughout art styles is immense. These changes in art allow people to be more connected with the art they create as opposed to formal principles in art. These new at styles have no bounds and can be used to express any amount of emotions or thoughts.

I feel like art may not have a meaning to the person looking at it. However if the creator feels the art has a meaning then the art has the meaning it needs to have. Even decoration can have meaning if the one decorating or creating the decoration believes it does.

The essential questions project was a project we did which we had a word and we turned that word into a question and turned that question into a piece of art that represented that word's question.
In my case however I couldn't come up with a word that would be good enough to represent in a piece of art. So I decided it would be better for me to work backwards and make the art first. After I had started the art I had made out the word "and" which became the question "and then what?"
