What is art?

What is art for?

Why did the artist make it like that?

Was it magical? Religious? To celebrate something?

To tell a story?

How did the artist earn a living?

What tools, materials, and techniques did the artist use?

Are there hidden meanings that can become clear?

Activities to try at home.
