Art permeates every aspect of our lives, from the structures that we have erected as symbols of our communities to the clothes that we wear and the media pictures that we consume to the exhibitions that are housed in museums and art galleries. It is present in many aspects of our daily lives. However, why do we choose to study art? How do we go about discussing art?
Through the development of a deeper comprehension and enjoyment of art, Living with Art shows students how art may be found in their everyday lives. Getlein goes one step further by providing students with the skills essential to examine, comprehend, and maintain an appreciation for art throughout their entire lives.
