Writing Idea
Since the invention of the camera in the late 1800s, painters and photographers have had a “competition” with the images they create. Today, in the early 21st century, the public is bombarded with visual images created almost instantly with computers and other technology. Painting has survived throughout all this upheaval. Write an article for your local or school newspaper defending painting and encouraging its inclusion in your school curriculum. (If it is already included, defend keeping it there!)
