Art & Design Degree Guide

The question 'What is Art?' always drums up a bit of debate. Art itself is notoriously difficult to define, and the fact that the notion of art is forever changing and developing makes it even trickier to pin down. One popular definition of a ‘piece of art’ is something that is produced as a direct result of human creativity. While art has traditionally been concerned with beauty and aesthetics, it can also be used as a means of challenging social and moral conventions, and plays a key role in reflecting upon culture and society within any given era.
