Are there universal elements that distinguish what we call “art” from other objects or experiences? How can we recognize art when we see it?

In the first four lessons of Program 1, you will explore the nature of art by examining each of four art forms — theatre, music, dance, and visual art. You will begin to develop a definition for each of the art forms and consider how you might determine whether a particular item is art. In the fifth lesson, you will investigate how these art forms work together in a multi-arts performance piece.
