It's Monday! I'm tired.  I stayed up too late talking with the older girls. Why do we have our best conversations at night?  Last night the topic was art. Art? I have no idea how we got on this topic. Yes, both girls are college students taking art classes. Both have very different views on art. Older daughter is an auditory learner. (If you homeschool, it is common to figure out your child's learning style so they can be taught more effectively.) Her sister is a visual learner. They both interpret art so differently.  Older daughter likes reality and facts,  Her sister likes allegories and fiction.  We concluded that art can appreciated by the artist's ability (older daughter) or the artist's emotion and expression (younger daughter). Older daughter does not appreciate modern art and younger daughter likes to glean mood and expression from it.  My take on this: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

and listener... my 3 have similar tastes in music because of their close age but as they've gotten older they also have a much broader differing taste.
