 Assignment Explanation


(0:24) KatieContinues: Hey!

swordsmith4: Hi.

leshappydinosaur: Good morning.

Jane83Doe: Hi everyone.

followergerrard: Hello fellow followers.

Théo Evans: There is a YouTube series called The Art Assignment.

We Are St. Elmo's Fire: The most recent one was about this artist, Florian Rivière.

KatieContinues: They have this website...

Eoin Pluinceid: ...and it gives you a thing, a thing to do with that thing, and a place to do the thing with that thing that you have to do.

KatieContinues: A what, a how, and a where.

We Are St. Elmo's Fire: What, a how, and a where.

laufeyha: This week's art assignment was to go to whathowandwhere.com and follow the instructions you were given there.

DrivingOnWires: It's all things that are kind of pointless, but that's kind of the point; it's to, like, make you look at things differently.

We Are St. Elmo's Fire: So now I am going to do one of those things.

Jane83Doe: Let's play some What, How, and Where for Art Assignment 7.

I only understand the bitter taste you were after. I like that too.
