Language, in the simplest sense is a way to communicate with others, but more than that, language is way that I can express myself and my thoughts, which is why it's so important. It’s a reflection of who I am and where I came from. In How to Tame a Wild Tongue, Anzaldua explains that Chicano Spanish is a boarder tongue that “sprang out of the Chicanos’ need to identify ourselves as a distinct people.” (Cohen, 2017, p. 36) In Mother Tongue, Tan talks about how her mother’s “broken” English is their “language of intimacy, ... that relates to family talk. The language I grew up with.” (Cohen, 2017, p. 416.) Looking at theses essays, it’s clear that language isn’t just a way to communicate it’s an important part of my identity and culture.
Taking art 1301 was one of the best decisions in my life, because I learned the true meaning of art, history plays a important part in art and there is art everywhere. I discovered that the art museum had so many great paintings and some of the artwork comes from the old times, like during the world war I and II , I did not know the museum would have amazing historical artwork. One thing I noticed is that some artist have created the same type of artwork they use one skill for all their paintings or statue for example Fred Wilson created the “ Were ancient Egyptians black,white,or brown” his artwork has the same faces created five time, but the only difference is the color of the statue. He used the same technics, which makes his art
Art has been around for centuries, expressed in various ways through different mediums; painting, drawing, photography, music, and so many more. Each having smaller categories within them. One can create a portrait with different types of paint, chalk, pens and pencils, the lens of a camera. A musician can convey a feeling within lyrics, or notes of a song. Separate forms of art, yet if you look closely enough, you can see similarities as well. Edgar Degas’ The Singer in Green, and Jan Vermeer’s the Milkmaid were created out of two different mediums, but also feature active women. The Singer in Green is a beautiful drawing done on light blue laid paper, with pastels.

Throughout generations cultural traditions have been passed down, alongside these traditions came language. The language of ancestors, which soon began to be molded by the tongue of newer generations, was inherited. Though language is an everlasting changing part of the world, it is a representation of one’s identity, not only in a cultural way but from an environmental standpoint as well. One’s identity is revealed through language from an environmental point of view because the world that one is surrounded with can cause them to have their own definitions of words, an accent, etc. With newer generations, comes newer forms of languages. Although these new generation 's’ way of speaking has come from elsewhere, there is a kind of shame that comes from this. Shame, because their ancestors spoke
Creating art is one of the many ways our brains can go on autopilot and deal with the stress everyday events may cause. It isn’t just drawing or painting; in fact, art can be defined as visual, auditory, or performing acts that convey unique and creative thoughts to be appreciated for their beauty by oneself or others. The artist’s thoughts become the art through their personal hardships, struggles, and overall awareness of oneself.

This is President Warren G Harding 's innaugarual address, on March 4th 1921. It is addressed to the public of the United States and the nation as a whole. This document has been largely critized as one of the worst innaguaral addresses, simply because it is overly wordy, doesn 't say much, and mainly dances around issues instead of directly addressing them. This quote from a New Yorker article does a good job of putting a large public opinion about this document into words. "...The problem doesn’t lie in the length of their sentences or the number of their syllables. It lies in the absence of precision, the paucity of ideas, and the evasion of every species of argument." It is important to understand this document because it is the address
Many people have difficulty writing and the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic, author, and lecturer, Michael Dirda, can support that. Flaw-speckled writing is dealt with over and over again by everyone who aims to write, and in the article written for the Browsings column entitled, “Language Matters”, Michael Dirda explains just that. In Dirda’s article which aims to show what goes into a piece, how it all fits, and the large amount of work needed, he describes the struggles of the modern author when writing. Directed to the readers of The American Scholar, Dirda uses many examples of rhetorical strategies such as outstanding word choice and the audience’s self-interest.

Artwork is all around the world, but is it really worth the resources and time for it? In the essay “Is Art a Waste of Time?” by Ryhs Southan he discusses the purpose of art and explains the group, Effective Altruism. The main argument is that Effective Altruism do not agree with using resources and time on artwork. Effective Altruism is against artwork the resources, and time it uses up that do not contribute to the poor. Art is like a language, ideas and thoughts that may not be able to be articulated any other way. The big debate is whether artist artwork is a waste of resources and time, or if it is good for the world with all the creativity and the beauty it has. Art is more than justifiable to enjoy it. The enjoyment of art gives modern
In earlier seminal text he has acknowledged that language is not always the best means to express what we perceive when encountering a work of art. Yet, In a later essay Language and Understanding he defends the import he has placed on linguistic understanding writing: “the
Lines, spacing, color and shapes are the basic elements of art. I believe art is an expression of the body, mind, and soul of an individual. I also believe art shouldn 't have any boundaries, nor should have restrictions. I believe art always has something to say, but never needs to make a statement. The audience always has the right to interpret art as they see fit. Everyone has their own criteria set when it comes to art. But art is subjective and the artist shows you their views and interpretations.
