During a lecture in my first semester of college my professor changed the way I view art. He went on talking about how art had been around for centuries due to its indispensable benefits to humankind. That prehistoric cave men only knew of survival during their lives, though they still managed to find the time to paint on rock walls. “Why do you think that is?” he asked the class as we waited for him to answer his own question. He replied “It is because even our most primitive ancestors saw the benefits and importance in self expression through art.”
