What a load of “ART” / The Art of Arting

Art is a loaded word.

Is it pretentious by default?

Or do you picture crafts and crayons and kid stuff? Or old person stuff?

It probably depends on your experience with art.

Personally, I think of art in terms of emotion, but not in a lofty way that raises it up above the “common man”, which is such a condescending term. It’s just that I think “art” no matter where you find it or even if it affects only you and nobody else, generates emotions (happiness, joy, sadness, longing, frustration, pity, love, etc).

I’m trying to redefine the way my mind reacts to the word.
