Explore the boundaries of creative expression with this insightful video. Focusing on the modern era, the program examines how new styles, subjects, and media have continually complicated the question, "Is it art?" Students will explore such topics as the relationship of folk, abstract, modern, and minimalist styles to realism; censorship; and controversial art. Content is developed through informative narrative segments and two artistic encounters: a visit to an artist's studio and a group art project. Stressing the importance of active questioning, the program guides students toward a deeper engagement with the visual arts.
