I don’t know how to handle this Art & Design question and need guidance.

Directions: For this Forum, you must post an original statement between 150-300 words between Monday, January 20 (Noon) and Tuesday, February 4 (11:59 pm).

You may 1) respond to a prompt made by the professor below, or 2) respond to a post made previously by a classmate, or 3) come up with your own original topic (so long as it deals with one of the readings assigned for this week). Please make clear by title/author/page number, which part of which text you discuss. Responses to these questions don’t have “right” and “wrong,” provided you make a good faith effort to deal with the readings. In fact, each of the prompts I have composed asks in one way or another for you to link some experience from your own life with something from the readings. So, definitely no right and wrong there. If you prefer to start your own thread here are some suggestions: pick a passage from one of the readings you found particularly insightful or helpful and articulate why you found it so; pick a passage that confused you or that you believed was unclear. PASTE THE PROMPT AT THE TOP OF YOUR REPLY.
