what i learned
I thought the discussion was very interesting today in lecture. I always find it interesting to talk about how different women express art. Whether it is through a family quilt, or story telling, or poetry, women have found ways to express their hereitage despite opression. Many times it is the oppression that sparks the art. However, I always wonder which had more influence on a person's art, the circmumstances that surrounded them like access to books and education or whether pure natural talent and the desire to be heard. Both play an important role and it makes me sad to think of the art that we missed out on because certain women did not have access to allow their art to be shared with the world.
