Last week I had a big discussion with my Fye class and other Fye classes. We all had one thing in common-aspiring to be artists someday. Since we all have similar classes, we talked about some of them and how they were going to impact us in the future. The class that everyone was concerned about was our math class. We didn’t seem to understand why we would need math if our focus is art. We learned that we need math for measuring, estimating etc. We learned that those are actually quite important when it comes to painting or drawing or whatever your concentration is in art.
We also learned of how psychology is related to art. It shows how you see things and how things are perceived. Most of the classes we take are mandatory because of either basic knowledge or because they will help us in the long run whether we see it now or not.
