2. Reasons that you would need to observe other artwork is to get better ideas or to expand your own. Others artwork can inspire you. It can also show you something that you may have never thought of. Lastly it can teach you new methods that could make your artwork better!
3. Copying is not always plagrism. At the beginning of the year and had the right idea in mind. I then learned about it and learned I was right.

4. From the beginning of the year to the end I still feel that artists have many different reasons to make art. One could be to express themselves or for pleasure. Another could be to get away or as a stress reliever. Many people do it as a career and make a profit off of it to live. I do it simply for pleasure.
