Challenging the Ideas of Art

How do we view art? How do we define art? More importantly, how do we accept and challenge these ideas?

The Key of Dreams by Rene Magritte 1898-1967 private collection

From the movie Mona Lisa Smile and John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, how did we think about the ideas of arts? Let us compare it ideas presented in most art books such as Robert Cumming’s Eyewitness Companion to Art. How can we apply that in everyday life?

To my students, forgive the lateness of the post, there are some WordPress kinks that I had difficulties with.

Mommy mode with Team Leia. Lol. Daughter decided to bury me under her friends. They're all mine now. #babynarratives
Finally made some fluffy pancakes! Yay! They are not photogenic, but so fluffy and yummy. Recipe still needs some tweaking but we are getting there. Too bad we don't have some butter coz we keep on forgetting to buy some. This is more of a protein pancake as I used garbanzo and fava flour. We're trying to up the little one's protein intake without giving her too much meat, so we look into plant-based proteins. Here I used garbanzo and fava flour, milk, eggs, muscovado sugar, salt, aaaaand baking soda! It was what I needed all this time to make my pancakes fluff up. Yum yum! Home-cooked stuff are really the best. #babyfood #babynarratives
Snapshots from the play place. She found some toy screw drivers that she just wouldn't let go. She also loved the ball pit and the treasure chest. Glad she managed to play even around much bigger and rowdier kids. #babyplay #babynarratives
We've been exploring a new play place. More difficult on the weekend due to so many kids and she's usually one of the tiniest one there. But looks like our little one had fun still. Socializing or at least getting used to being around other children is so important at this stage. #babyplay #babynarratives
Hello? I'm 14 months old and I want to order some pizza, fries, and cookies. Just kidding... Or am I? Lol. So cute. She's been walking around with my purse and waving. Too bad I just can't get a photo of it. She's in a copy cat stage, she even tried putting my slippers on and walking! I think its a tad early for all of this. Time just flew by sooo fast. #babynarratives
Walang pila kaya nakapag-milk tea. Tapos yung inorder ko wala daw palang tea, gatas lang. Lol. Mommy milk or boba milk? #milktea #teatime
