Prompt: What’s a better indicator of quality in art–the approval of experts or popularity among mass audiences?
Art is part of the uncertain part of the spectra of area of knowledges. This would entail that opinion of one would be most probable. This then brings out the discussion when we can consider one as a good art or as a bad art. While having a discussion in class, some of the premises of some people were valid and some things that I thought were confirmed. Based on my interpretation, I would most probably say that good art is decided by credible people, not necessarily the authority and the approval of the majority is required.
The general emotion of the public when taken into consideration would have advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage is that the people who look at it would give the opinion that they want to convey especially about the topic. This would allow the person to fully give and exercise their like for the art. On the other hand, the disadvantage of emotion is that we are not sure if all the people who look at the art is the same. This would trigger different arguments whether or not the art is good. The different backgrounds and culture of people would trigger their intuition and would say how they think.
The other way of knowing used in the argument is reason. Like emotion, there are different advantages and disadvantages with using this way of knowing. The main advantage is that the art being presented is logically criticized and well understood through inductive and deductive reasoning. On the other hand, the main disadvantage of using this way of knowing is if we tend to fall to fallacies and use our bias and pride, then we will make the wrong judgement with this way of knowing.
Laying down the different advantages and disadvantages of both ways of knowing, we then can see the inclination for emotion more. This is because we use our emotion to judge and see how we feel towards the specific art. The main logic of this is that we would not like ugly things and we tend to destroy them. If we see something as beautiful even though others think its not, then we would take care of it. This thus leads us to one of the knowledge claim that beauty if art is decided by the beholder. This is primarily true due to the description of emotion as a way of knowing.
In wrapping up this discussion, I firmly believe that the claim of protecting the beautiful is true and this would allow us to take care of thing things that we have. We would tend to care for it and other people see it also as beautiful due to our race and culture. Thus, analyzing the discussion above, the decision of a good art is more for the decision of the majority rather than the authority.

I count all of the images given in class art. These images whether or not it is a picture or painting, it entails seeing people think. It expresses the emotion and feeling that the person doing it wants to give. Understanding art may be very difficult since it doesn’t have criteria in where we can base it on. Love for doing something and knowing how express feelings is the best way to describe art for me. Art is the love for something abstract. It is the way in where we can let other people see how we do and how we feel. It also shows how we live: our culture, environment and likes.
The IB Learner Profile Should:
-Innovative – To let candidates learn more and think better: understanding the need for change in the things that we do so that we can continuously improve our way and style of living.
-Well Rounded – To let candidates learn the need to know the different things as these things will make one a better person. This will make one more responsive to changes in this fast and modern world.
-Thinkers – Thinking without the objective to change would be a waste of time and this would be under the characteristic of innovative.
-Knowledgable – Knowledge without applying it would be useless. This would be under the trait of well rounded and innovative.
