Who decides if you are an artist?
Something that I love most is technology. I have my phone with me 24/7 and am always on it pretty much. The way technology has evolved is crazy. Well so has the way art is shared as well. Like my art teacher Mrs. Rose has said in her recent blog post (https://storify.com/ColleenKR/who-decides-if-you-are-an-artist), art is now shown over social media such as Instagram, Facebook, twitter etc. You do not have to physically see the artwork now in a gallery, but over technology. How cool is that? My opinion on sharing your artwork over social media is much more effective because more and more people can view it. I think its awesome.
This question "Would you post your art on the internet or not?" gives me mixed signals because for one: I would love to share my art over the internet, but the downfall of that would be other people trying to steal your picture of your art unless you put your name on it somewhere. (copyright)
I absolutely love the idea about collaborating with other people on this website. I think I am going to post something on that website and see what other people can come up with for making my art even better.
