Things to consider in your post, how does what you learned about your in-depth study help you to better understand art, better understand the world, or better understand humanity? If you learned about a specific artist or work, how did the artist’s life reflect in his work? How did the time period or things going on in the world affect the art? Be sure to give at least 2 examples of how the context you learned deepened your understanding. Beyond that, you may talk about how the art or artist spoke to you, what you felt when looking at the art and learning more about it, and how the art, artist, or time period relates to today or specific areas of our humanity.
