The Arts: Writing About the Arts
Art, in every instance and every form, instigates response. Seeing a play, film, video, painting or sculpture, hearing music or story, reading a poem or novel we naturally reflect on what we've taken in, want to express our thoughts and/or test our analysis. Writing about the Arts is an overview and exploration of how to address in analytic and critical media what it is about a work of art, of fixed form or live performance, that one personally sees, hears, understands and reacts to, with reference to a heritage of arts criticism and contemporary practices in print and on the web.
