For week 2, I met Jessica Obrique for the classmate conversation. It is her fifth year at Cal State Long Beach but it is her last semester and her major is Computer Science. The question of the week was “Is art actually important? In today’s world?” Jessica believes that art is important for creative purposes like sculptures and paintings. She said that “People don’t appreciate art” and I agree with her. She had really interesting things to say about art how it helps people reflect and helps them feel certain emotions. Lastly, she said that people use art more than expected. Jessica helped me think more about art and how much it should be appreciated.
