Where do you draw the line?

Where do you draw the line? What does art mean to you? Post my discussion with Jackie, I have created a summary of her response to this question. Jackie is a psychology major beginning her second year at CSULB. She aspires to be a high school counselor. She is taking this class to not only fill a GE requirement, but because she appreciates and has an interest in art. After expressing my broad definition of art to her, Jackie responded that similarly, her definition of art would be anything that evokes an emotional reaction or adds additional meaning to an otherwise ordinary thing. From what I understood, Jackie was interested in emotional depth of a piece. This trait must be present for her to consider it art. Good talk Jackie!
