I have always found that having a cultural experience and background is really important in learning more about any area you’re studying. Be language, people, whatever you’re interested in, you should have some sort of background.
Now, I know most people don’t consider certain things art but I do intend to highlight: nails, hair, makeup, and fashion because to me, it’s art to somebody! I’ll also be highlighting artists, street work, modern and contemporary design, and any other interesting facts or artifacts I may stumble across to help broaden your horizons for conversations. Consider these, “conversation starters”.
